Sometimes you may want to change the default score for a SA test if it is causing false positives or false negatives.
To change the score for a test, do NOT modify it in the original .cf
file in the SpamAssassin configuration files. (It will be overwritten
with any spamassassin rules updates.) Instead, add your modified scores
to a special .cf file in /etc/mail/spamassassin/, such as
/etc/mail/spamassassin/configserver.cf (which will already exist if you
have had us install MailScanner for you). You should use the following
score TEST_NAME 1.0
The word "score" is required on each one. Replace TEST_NAME with the
actual exact name of the test as it appears in MailWatch or the spam
report in the message headers. The number after the test name is the
score you want to use *instead* of what it is currently using.
a test so it does not add anything to an email's
spamassassin score, change the score to zero by adding a line like this
score TEST_NAME 0.0
