Hi Valentin, 

Thanks for your input. Is there anything else to secure my MailScanner from spam mails. 

Thanks & Regards, 
Kirijan J

In my setup scores are 

Required SpamAssassin Score = 3 
High SpamAssassin Score = 6 

Also look at 

# Do you want to always include the Spam Report in the SpamCheck 
# header, even if the message wasn't spam? 
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset. 
Always Include SpamAssassin Report = no 

If you set this to yes you can see spam check details in headers of every message and tune your scores.

This can be kind of hard with just the configuration file. 
MailScanner does however generate a detailed spam report in which you can see which rules affect the spam score of the emails. 
So I would suggest that you look at that. If I am not mistaken, it is added to the logfile, but I have mostly been working with tools like MailGuardian and MailWatch, where the information is logged to a SQL database. 

Otherwise, a quite small and easy thing to do is to change your " SpamAssassin Score" to a lower value, which would then filter out more mail Best regards

Hi Team, 
We are using MailScanner with Zimbra mail server. We are receiving lot of spam on that. Can you help me on this. 
Some spam mails are blocking and it's stored to quarantine folder. Some spam mails are not blocked. 
I have attached mailscanner.conf for your reference. 
Thanks & Regards,
