    Here is an interesting bug I think.

    Using option "Do not forward mail to external recipients if it matches the Apache SpamAssassin™ internal spam_score setting" in Exim settings, I have found that if the message fails the spam_score it is also not received by the forwarding inbox.

    To clarify, a@a.com sends to b@b.com that forwards to c@gmail.com - b@b.com finds it to be spam and returns 550 and does not accept to inbox. If there are no forwarders set, b@b.com accepts to inbox (albeit tagging it spam)

    - anyhow - eagerly awaiting your thoughts.

    You're saying in this instance that b@b.com doesn't accept the mail or forward it if there's a forwarder in place but the same scored email is accepted but flagged as spam if there is no forwarder in place?

    Yes - precisely.

    Do you happen to have the spam headers for any of these that this has occurred with?

    Here is the returned msg headers:

    It shouldn't hard to test.

    Can you copy the headers and let me delete them? I feel a bit exposed having that data "out there"

    I'm going to remove them, I want the spam headers where spamassassin scored the emails.

    What do you think though - is this a bug?

    It's possible, though I don't have enough information to determine that just yet.
