Hello,

Our user A from Server A has emailed our user B on Server B, and that email was flagged as spam and ended up in Junk folder.

Reason you may ask?

X-Spam-Flag: YES
Subject:  ***SPAM***  EMAIL_SUBJECT
This is a multipart message in MIME format.
By the looks of things, the email has no body content, but just legitimate attachments that the user chose to send to the other user. In my mind, this is a legit use of emailing... But clearly not according to SpamAssassin...

1) How do you guys get around this other than actually going and changing the score either user-specific or server-wide?

2) Can someone explain why PYZOR_CHECK is unhappy and scording 1.8 there?

3) What's the difference between BAYES_99 and BAYES_999 and what exactly don't they like?

4) SB_GIF_AND_NO_URIS: That's just in almost everyone's email signature isn't it? An image that is their company logo or similar why is this an issue? :facepalm:

Hey there! I think the answers to 1 and 2 can be found in the discussion here:


I'm not sure there is an answer we can provide for number 3. SpamAssassin's bayesian filtering is based on learning from previous messages marked as spam, so it could be what they don't like is unique to your particular environment. If you have a few hundred emails, it might be worth trying to re-train SpamAssassin to better recognize the email your systems handle - Tutorial - How To Train SpamAssassin with SA-Learn

For number 4, the documentation for SB_GIF_AND_NO_URIS says this:

"Explanation The mail has an attachment of the MIME-type "image/gif" but the body does not contain a URI and an email address."

Is that the case with your particular signature?
