    As distributed from cPanel user_prefs is ignored.
    As distributed spamassassin permits tailoring of SCORES for various rules.
    The current distribution causes many spam messages to be passed through.

    I request cPanel increase the scores of several rules.

    Increasing the score for these rules by only +1.0 will cause a significant reduction in the spam being detected with only a minimum (if any) increase the occurrences of false positives.

    These suggestion are only ones that I actually encountered.
    For example: (rule name and score as distributed)
    RCVD_IN_XBL 3.0
    RCVD_IN_SBL 1.6
    RCVD_IN_SORBS_WEB .6
    MISSING_DATE 0.0
    MISSING_MID 0.0

    RCVD_IN_SORBS_DUL 0.9
    ADVANCE_FEE_1 0.0
    BODY_ENHANCEMENT 0.3
    DRUG_ED_SILD 0.3
    IMPOTENCE 1.1

    KAM_LOTTO1 0
    KAM_LOTTO2 0
    KAM_LOTTO3 0
    MILLION_USD 1.5
    NA_DOLLARS 1.3
    FB_GET_MEDS .8
    ONLINE_PHARMACY 0
    US_DOLLARS_3 0.6
    BODY_ENHANCEMENT2 0

    NO_HEADERS_MESSAGE 0
    SPF_FAIL .7
    DNS_FROM_DOB .7
    RCVD_IN_DOB 1.1
    TO_CC_NONE .1
    TO_MALFORMED 1.2
    DNS_FROM_RFC_BOGUSMX 1.5


    There are many others which I could include in a separate suggestion if others agree with this proposal.

    Thank you for your consideration.
