The only thing I can see that seems to be consistant with these emails;

-----------------------------------------------------------

subjects:

Very important note. You require to read.
Weighty note. You have to read.

-----------------------------------------------------------


gets scores anywhere from 5.4 - up


and on another note - another set of emails getting through, but I haven't found a pattern yet. The emails have GIFs attached to them similar to;

(I've noticed other email addresses I have, from a couple ISPs also scoring spam with similar emails of the above link)



anyone else getting emails with subjects above (and ones with the linked image) going through the filters?


I have the server threshold set to 9.2, because anything less and it rejects certain emails coming from OUTLOOK or emails with those stupid emoticons (smiley faces) in them.
Essentially, SA is relying on rules and blocking out majority of spam that comes above the 9 rating.
