I was making some test with an email provider for my email account in webfaction, and one of the emails was marked as spam, looking to the headers of spam-assassin

X-Spam-Flag: YES

X-Spam-Score: 3.149

X-Spam-Level: ***

X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=3.149 tagged_above=-999 required=3 tests=[AWL=1.614, BAYES_00=-2.599, DNS_FROM_OPENWHOIS=1.13, HTML_IMAGE_ONLY_20=1.546, HTML_MESSAGE=0.001, MIME_HTML_ONLY=1.457]

And the problem that I could see, is in here "DNS_FROM_OPENWHOIS=1.13" which it's suppose to be a wrong filter for spam assassin according to this, and if we subtract the result the corresponding email wouldn't be marked as spam.

So which version of spam assassin is been used to filter my emails?

Did my assumptions are wrong or something?

Thanks

We're using SpamAssassin version 3.2.5 on our servers.

I'll pass the information regarding OpenWHOIS to our system administrators and they will update our configuration if necessary.

Ok, the OpenWHOIS rules are no longer being used in our SpamAssassin setup. Please let us know if you have any further problems, thanks!
