    One of my email user receive an email with malicious links on it.

    Spamassasin failed to block the email.

    yes sir i have clamav enabled on all of my servers.. I set them to scan "Scan Entire Home Directory" " Scan Mail" "Scan Public FTP Space" "Scan Public Web Space" and do even have malware detect.

    That's why Am a bit worry because it seems this kind of spam can penetrate successfully.

    Were your SpamAssassin Rules setup properly?

    Did you check the headers to see what score SpamAssassin gave and why it bypassed filtering it?

    Hello,

    Can you provide some more details about the specific type of content that is making it through your existing rules?

    Thank you.

    Most of the spam/phishing email is similar to this one

    Code:
      Hi !
    
    
    Kindly please send me the last invoice to proceed in your payment immediately.

    Hi,

    Nothing came along with your last reply. Can you send the spam email headers again?
