Settings here are made in the jspamfilter.conf file.
DefaultAction
FilterTagThreshold
FilterBlockThreshold
JSpamFilter computes a "score" based on its analysis of an incoming email message. The score is determined by the lookup settings (see Part 9 (DNSBL and SURBL Look-Up Configuration)) and the entries in the filter file. The score can be thought of as a relative "open-ended" probability: the bigger score, the more likely the message is spam email.

The Block and Tag thresholds determine the values at which different "actions" occur:
  1. When setting the Block and Tag thresholds, set the Block threshold higher than the tag threshold.
  2. If the score exceeds the "block" threshold, the connection is Blocked.
  3. If the score exceeds the "tag" threshold, the message is Tagged.
DefaultAction

DefaultAction=Tag
If not overridden in the DNSBL entry (see JSpamFilter Manual Part 9 (DNSBL and SURBL Configuration)), this specifies the default action to use for "hits" on a DNSBL. If set to "block", the server will drop connections with a "550 service not available" error; if "tag", a "[JSpamFilter]" tag will be prepended to the Subject line of any message from a suspicious source. The default is Tag.

FilterTagThreshold

FilterTagThreshold=50
Mandatory when using tagging, even if not using a filter file. This is the score at which JSpamFilter will tag the e-mail. Note: If a message is on a "Tag" DNSBL list, the score starts at this value; this makes it so that messages that are already suspect are more likely to be blocked.

FilterBlockThreshold

FilterBlockThreshold=100
Optional. The score at which JSpamFilter will block the e-mail. In JSpamFilter Enterprise, messages on "Block" DNSBLs start at this score.
