    SA is configured for 5, yet this email has a score of 7 and somehow got through.
    Any ideas how ?

    Hello :)

    This indicates the message was detected as SPAM. Are you expecting a rejection of the message, or was it not moved to a SPAM directory if the Spam Box option is enabled?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As @cPanelMichael has stated above, it has been recognised as spam.

    Could you confirm if this email was delivered to your inbox or spam folder?
