I've already been here and thought I configured correctly but it is not marking any spam at all.

I'm looking to stop a particular spammer email. Its always similar but because of the way it is written, I can not stop it with account level filtering. I have posted the headers as a screen shot maybe someone can help me config it correctly

Hello :)

Could you provide the headers of the SPAM message that makes it through, and it's entry in /var/log/exim_mainlog? For instance, what's the SPAM score?

Thank you.

(Sorry i did not get an alert you had answered)
Hmm i do not see a spam score. the earlier pics shows my config.
does that mean I'm not installed correctly?

i edited my email address in the headers

i include a new pic with a bug/error (ript>) showing just above to the left of words SpamAssassin Configuration
could this be why?

my host says there is nothing wrong with SpamAssassin it is working perfectly.
i asked him why does it not add its scan info to the header such as status, score, version...
he said he would ask help from cpanel forum lol maybe he posted here.
Anyway the spamassassin is the latest version and acts like it is working,
as in the configure pages look ok. says enabled, no auto delete

what is going on when it is is not writing its scan in the headers?

Yes, finally here is the full header. I replaced my domain with <MyDomain> to protect my email.

I suggest implementing a new account level filter that targets contents of the message body to help stop these emails.

Thank you.

Nothin I do with the spam score catches this email
see pic

Code:
Match expanded arguments:
  Subject = -19
  Pattern = ^\d+$
Match expanded arguments:
  Subject = No, score=-2.0
  Pattern = ^\d+$
Return-path taken from "Return-path:" header line
Return-path = [email protected]
Sender      = [email][email protected][/email]
Recipient   = [email][email protected][/email]
Testing Exim filter file "/etc/vfilters/me123.us"

Filtering did not set up a significant delivery.
Normal delivery wil

You may need to contact your web hosting provider for assistance if you feel that SpamAssassin is not behaving as it should. It's not something that you can investigate without root access to the system.

Thank you.
