Yeah, OK. Maybe lowering the limit is the way to go. Thanks.

Rather than reducing your required_score, consider increasing the
scoring of certain
tests.

For instance , Razor is extremely reliable, because it is driven by
user reports.
If Razor says its spam it its. I score Razor very high:
score RAZOR2_CF_RANGE_E8_51_100 9.9
score RAZOR2_CF_RANGE_51_100 9.9

Next is URIBL_BLACK, another well checked list of massive spammers:
score URIBL_BLACK 9.999

These two take a LOT of spam directly over the recommended required
score.

That being said, most people do reduce their Required_score but only
after they have trained bayes as recommended by the spamassassin docs.
