This is where you can configure different scores for the hundreds of different tests and assign a score to that test. For example, you can check popular spam email lists, and set “10” score to the Calculated Spam Score to ensure any email caught by that test is always caught by your Spam Filter.
I do not recommend you change any of these settings, but I will walk you through a couple that you may wish to consider if you have a particularly bad problem with spam.
Step 1: Click the ‘Spam Filters’ link on the main cPanel dashboard.
Step 2: Toggle the ‘Additional Configurations (for Advanced Users)’.expand the list by clicking the “Show Additional Configurations” link.
Step 3: Click the ‘Configure Calculated Spam Score Settings’ Link.
Step 4: Add a New ‘Scores’ Item.
To review the default scores, run the following command at the command line:
grep -R score /var/lib/spamassassin/* | less
You can also see the default scores by adding any of the Scores Items, as the score when added will be the default one unless you change it.
