SpamAssassin score

What’s the SpamAssassin Spam score?

Mailservers use some spam rules to identify the majority of spam email messages. One of the most popular set of spam test rules is called SpamAssassin, here’s a little extract from the SpamAssassin official website:

SpamAssassin is a mature, widely-deployed open source project that serves as a mail filter to identify Spam.
SpamAssassin uses a variety of mechanisms including header and text analysis, Bayesian filtering, DNS blocklists, and collaborative filtering databases. SpamAssassin runs on a server, and filters spam before it reaches your mailbox.

Understanding SpamAssassin Spam Score

The higher the spam score rate is, the higher is the chance that once the mail has been sent, it will be filtered out as spam, (and marked with the [spam] or ****spam**** tags, or sometimes just not shown to inbox). You undestand why correcting any major spam issues before you actually send out your mailing newsletter is very important to enhance the chance to get to your customers inbox.

MailingCheck can be used by legitimate senders only, in order to track down any problem with their legitimate (opt-in) bulk email messages’ delivery and comply with SpamAssassin guidelines for senders.
