    Default SPAM Blocking reason??

    How do I find the reason an email was blocked as spam. A pile of emails got blocked by the Spam filter. This is an extract from the /var/log/zimbra.log log files. Note. This is from a fetchmail script downloading from remote servers and re-submitting to the zimbra server

    Where can I get more details information from?

    A Blocked SPAM with Hits: 0.997 is very strange. Your spam settings shall be very very low. Check your spam settings from the admin console, defaults are 33% and 75%. If they are correct, try to put this statement in /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf*

    $final_spam_destiny = D_PASS

    In this way you can see the spam messages in your spam folder. Check the header of the message to find the reason for the spam score.

    Default Ooops

    That might be me. I blanked the field for the spam level kill. Eg deleted the 75 and left it blank. Was hoping it would disable it but it looks like it set the level to 0

    I really don't like the kill option. Would rather have the email sent to the spam folder.

    I will reset the kill level back to 75% and add the line in the config.

    Thanks

    If you are not interested to see all the spam in junk folders, you should remove that amavisd config (D_PASS).
    This setup could be usefel for debug purpose or if you can not stop any message for any reason... (for example in Italy there is a law about it)
