    I have noticed that most people with BoxTrapper will still receive messages due to the Minimum SpamAssassin Spam Score required to bypass BoxTrapper parameter being a bit too high (default -2.5). Several frequent spam messages still arrive that pass these Spam Assassin rules with these default values:
    -1.5 RP_MATCHES_RCVD
    -1.9 BAYES_00
    This results in a -3.4 score.
    0.7 MIME_HTML_ONLY is also common, so messages result in a -2.6 score. In either case several messages will get through BoxTrapper when they should not. Changing it to -3.5 helps.

    I know how to changed the Minimum SpamAssassin Spam Score required to bypass BoxTrapper parameter on a per-email address basis, but is there a place to configure it via WHM/Exim configuration?

    Hello :)

    It appears this value is only configurable on individual email accounts. There is not a global option to modify the default minimum Spam Score. Feel free to open a feature request for this via:

    Thank you.
