Controlling your SpamAssassin threshold


The Infrastructure Team has just enabled a new feature to control your SpamAssassin Threshold for your apache.org account. The default score for user delivery has always remained at 10, but with this new feature you can lower that score to anything you want. Many people with older accounts will probably prefer a lower score, like 5, which is the default for all apache mailing lists.

To lower your score login to id.apache.org and change your 'SpamAssassin Threshold (asf-sascore)' attribute to your desired level. Don't forget to supply the form with your LDAP password.



Good to see you're allowing people to set the balance on their own blogs. For a while now a few of us feel that Akismet are silently doing more to kill the freedom of speech than anyone else in the western world. And now people like Michael Martinez are writing about it - Akismet is hurting real discussion on blogs.

Quick Q. for those of us ignorant of SpamAssassin. A lower score means more spam gets filtered, right?

right.. but be aware that a lower score can also increase false-positives
