    Hi to all.

    I have a question about bounce mail based on spam score.
    In WHM > Exim config manager I can set the "Apache SpamAssassin™: bounce spam score threshold" to a fixed value, for example "5".

    But what happens if in cPanel, for a single domain, I set a Spam Score of 7 (a more relaxed value, as asked by the owner of the domain) in "cPanel >> SpamAssassin" clicking on the "Configure Apache SpamAssassin"?

    All the mails with score from 5 to 7 will never reach the mailboxes of that domain, right?
    If I disable the "bounce spam score" the sender will never get a message of a erroneus message considered spam, right?

    So, is there a way to configure a "dynamic" bounce spam score threshold depending on the recipient domain?

    The "Apache SpamAssassin™: bounce spam score threshold" option configures a global Exim system filter rule when it's enabled. Thus, it works whether the account uses SpamAssassin or not, and takes precedence over any custom SpamAssassin rules configured on the account.

    That's correct.

    You could setup a custom filter rule within the account for this purpose:

    Thank you.
