Using Spamfire

The Spam Score

Each spam message is displayed in the Spam List. Each spam message has a Spam Score that indicates how certain Spamfire is about the message being spam. See How Spam Scores Work.

You can click the Score column heading to sort the Spam List by Spam Score. The messages Spamfire was least certain about will be sorted to the top of the list. This makes it easy for you to check Spamfire's accuracy. As the Spam Scores increase, you can be more certain that the message really is spam.

You can specify the Score Threshold that Spamfire uses when deciding whether to trap or accept messages.
