I signed up for your Email store/forward service over the weekend. It is working well, thank you. I have a question though. I am familiar with SpamAssassin, which is also used in my MDaemon setup (user 20+ years). Before using your service I let MDaemon accept all messages but have SpamAssassin mark them (X-Spam-Flag) so they would be automatically routed to the user's spam folder. My concern is false-positives. I prefer to accept but route to spam folder in those rare cases a message I want is mistaken for spam. Does you SpamAssassin setup mark only, or actually refuse/delete messages? Or perhaps a hybrid of both -- refuse/delete only when extremely high score, how I have also done it in the past. I turned off spam filtering on the two domains but I still see some messages have scores in the headers, so not sure if it's really disabled. I would prefer to use your filtering because of course by serving many you learn spam better than I ever could. But still the concern about good messages mistaken for spam. If only mark as spam is an option, that is my choice. Then MDaemon here does the routing to the spam folder. Perhaps that is your default, and I should have no concerns. Please let me know how it works at your end. Thank you.

The emails have a spam score of -500 to skip spam filter if you have anti-spam turned off.
