    Hi Michael,

    I just want to know what is the recommended value when setting this up:

    Scan outgoing messages for spam and reject based on defined Apache SpamAssassin™ score (Minimum: 0.1; Maximum: 99.9)
    Scan and reject mail bound for non-local domains that Apache SpamAssassin™ classifies as spam.

    While in CPANEL, we have score options between 1 to 10 for spam assassin.

    Hello @shaqabwebmaster,

    The default setting for incoming email is 5.0, which is aggressive, but you could set the value for that option to 5.0 if you wanted to match the default score used for incoming email. If you wanted to configure SpamAssassin to be more lenient for outgoing mail, you can use a higher value (for example, 8.0 or 10.0).

    Thank you.
