With the new version of Exim, I think we can run better filters. (I'm no brain sergin) :)

Has anyone setup SpamAssassin to now use the advanced features like 'Learn'?

And, more importantly, has anyone setup the mail so that we can control the filtering of different scores?
Like:
SA score 5 = mark as Spam and deliver
SA score 15 = move spam to special folder
SA score 20 or higher = delete


Thanks,
Brian

I've set this up with simple Mail Filtering in Cpanel.

I simply set a filter to discard any emails with the spam header including ********** (ten stars) to indicate a score of 10.

Other filters can be sent to redirect different score numbers. This can be done on a per-domain basis which is nice. One account as set the discard at '8' and is thinking of going down to '6' as they've noticed there are very little false positives.
