Even better would be to allow users to configure what threshold they want to delete at. The current value is certainly too high for my taste. Also, it would be nice to have the option to not add the lengthy preamble with the preview, analysis and so on; the headers are quite sufficient on their own and having the original message be an attachment makes some kinds of processing more difficult.

I would concur with the original request. Since the hardware upgrade, I have been getting an excessive number of spams forwarded - The majority with a spam score >20.

Hum, I made a mistake, only mails sent to mailing list with a high score are automatically trashed. Users mails are not.

Ok I understand that; still I find it strange then that mails which are flagged with a score of 26.5 are allowed to pass through if the limit is 13. (I've got others with 17.3 and 14.5 respectively here as well).

We cannot destroy personal messages with a so low threshold, it would be too harsh regarding false positives. The current is 13, under we only flag the mail.

Would it by any chance be possible to not forward mail you've identifed as spam? Since currently I'm receiving quite a lot of spam through the address. See the attached file for an example (with headers). Looking at these headers I can see that SpamAssasin (the one running at your servers) gave this mail a spamscore of 11.5. So could you maybe just drop mails having a spamscore higher than, for example 8?
