  • Punishment: If SpamAssassin assigns an email message with a score of 10 or more (the blacklist options below add 100.0 to the score), the our mail server doesn't even accept the email. It gets rejected with a "Blocked by SpamAssassin" error. It doesn't get stored on our mail server, which saves disk space and makes backups easier. (It becomes a problem for the mail server that sent it to us, but those are the breaks if one is a spam relay.)

  • Multiple devices: If you read your mail on different devices (e.g., your laptop, a desktop, your phone) then the SpamAssassin rules will apply to all your incoming mail. If you set up spam filtering on Thunderbird on your laptop, that will have no effect on mail you receive via the Mail app on your iPhone.
