    Hi Guys,

    I've got what is hopefully a simple question.

    Where are the spamassassin configuration files held for each user and the server in general?

    I've noticed /home/$user/.spamassassin/user_pref but it looks like it's all commented out.

    The server was set in Exim configuration for "Apache SpamAssassin™ reject spam score threshold" to a score of 5. But I found users that had their own scores in their cPanel, yet I couldn't find a file with required_score with the value they set.

    Hello :)

    The correct file to modify is /home/$user/.spamassassin/user_prefs. The default values are commented out, so you can uncomment a value if you want to make it a custom entry. EX:

    required_score 6
    Thank you.
