Adding URL reputation to spam score

Hello, I am using Email Gateway version 7.6 and I am getting many spams.

There are some URLs in these spams that was scored at 15. However these scores are not added to the total spam score. Is that correct? Is there a way to add this score 15 to spam score?

Thank you.

Re: Adding URL reputation to spam score


URL reputation is a separate subsystem from antispam.  The scores are not cumulative between the two.  If you have spam that isn't getting picked up, the first thing I would recommend is try lowering your threshold for action from 5.0 to 4.2 and seeing if that makes a difference.  You can also submit spam samples to the McAfee Labs team for analysis and inclusion in future rules updates.  See for more information on how to do so.
