Why is 'Required Score' setting ignored? [message #405] Fri, 08 December 2006 16:59

Hi,

I'm running NoSpamToday on my XP machine for a while now. But I have problems with the fact that almost ALL my e-mail is rated as spam. So many false positives is just plain annoying! But before thowing away NoSpamToday, I want to give it a last try...

1. At this moment I have set the Required Score under Setup to the bizarre number of 140.00 but even then, most of the e-mail ham is rated as spam. It seems to make no difference if the setting is 3.0, the default, 7.00 or even 999.00 so I conclude that this setting is being ignored. Why?!?

2. I use Outlook as my e-mail client. Converting messages to be able to train SpamAssassin is just too complicated. I was hoping NoSpamToday would be able to be set up to communicate with the plugin SpamAssassin Coach for Outlook from http://sourceforge.net/projects/soc2006spamd/
This plugin can train SA through 127.0.0.1:port_number but as I understand this has to be allowed in the SA configuration. Can this be done with SA that is provided with NoSpamToday?

Thanks!

Ravan

Please turn on detailed logging and send your
