I need to customise spam protection for a client in an industry where emails sometimes look like spam.

I have been copying from http://blog.webfaction.com/server-side-mail-filters to delete emails with spam ranking higher than 8.

But I also found a different syntax at http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/email.html#filtering-spam

Which one is correct?

Also at what spam ranking level are emails deleted when activating default spam protection (Discard spam ticked)?

Hello,

Our docs section is well maintained and it's the one how's articles we keep up to date, so you should consult and try them first.

That said, both are correct, but he have implemented the tips on our blog in the way our email filters spam, so you don't have to.

We use the default SpamAssassin score (5) to decide if a message is spam or not.

Just one final question regarding this, is the first part needed as stated in the blog post:

Send mail to spamassassin

:0fw: spamassassin.lock | /usr/bin/spamassassin

The docs section does not contain this part.
