How does SpamAssassin mark messages as spam at Progressive Networks?
SpamAssassin evaluates every email message that comes to your account. If it thinks any email message is spam by scoring a ‘5’ or higher, it will add a number of headers to the mail message letting you know. They will look something like this: X-Spam-Flag: Yes X-Spam-Level: ******** X-Spam-Score: 8.518 (********) HELO_DYNAMIC_IPADDR,SARE_ADLTOBFU,SARE_ADLTSUB1,SARE_ADLTSUB2 The first header is ‘X-Spam-Flag’ and it is either a yes or no value letting you know that the message is either spam or it’s not. In this case it’s “yes”. The second header is ‘X-Spam-Level’ which is a representation of the score the email has received in asterisks (*). The third header is ”X-Spam-Score’ which contains the numerical value of the score along with the representation in asterisks, as well as the tests which returned a positive match for typical spam characteristics.
