    I was wondering if the default tests for the current spam assassin version (the one that is coupled with the CPanel version) are all enabled or should I choose them in the configuration page for SpamAssassin.
    I mean... the config page is just to assign different scores to those tests but they are all executed by default with default scores (including the ones on the block lists like spamhaus barracuda and so on...) OR I must insert the test I want in the config page of CPanel otherwise no test at all is performed?
    So the question in the end is ... the config page SCORE section is just to redefine scores for tests there will be executed in any case or to add new tests? This is an example test list for 3.3 version: https://spamassassin.apache.org/tests_3_3_x.html

    For example, about block lists, do I have to add those (with my scores) in the config page or they are already up and running by default or do I have to enable something or set them explicitly in the config page? Do you suggest to enable BIND to cache requests to those lists as I read in some topics to avoid being blocked?

    URIBL_BLACK
    RCVD_IN_SBL
    RCVD_IN_XBL
    RCVD_IN_PBL
    URIBL_DBL_SPAM
    RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT

    Or for example do I have to add those?
    SPF_FAIL
    SPF_PASS
    SPF_NEUTRAL

    Thanks in advance

    After some deeper testing and reading I guess the answer is all tests are performed (including blocklists), you may just want to add them to the config page, under the score section to change the default scores.

    Yes, these are part of the normal SpamAssassin configuration. The configuration page in cPanel allows you to modify the scores.

    Thank you.
