    Puremessage Quarantine levels query

    I currently have Pure Message setup to class anything with a spam score of 50% or more as suspected spam(Quarentine) and anything with a score of 90% or more as spam(Delete).

    This has worked pretty well for a while however we've just started to get a few phishing mails with scores between 35-40%, based on my own mailbox in the last few months most genuine mail is coming in with a spam score of 8-10%, mail shots and newsletters are often coming in at between 15-25%.

    Could anyone using puremessage tell me how low you currently go without affecting too many genuine mails? I'm thinking about reducing the limit to 33% or so.

    Cheers,

    James

    I used to run it at around 35% suspected spam and 55% Spam that worked very well for my needs and didn't find much in the quarantine box to deal with.
