Spam messages meaning

Does anyone know from where we can get the SPAM report rules meaning?

for example:

X-NAI-Spam-Report: 7 Rules triggered

               *  1 -- MFE_BAD_ST_1

               *  1 -- MFE_BAD_ST_2

               *  1 -- MID_42HEX_W_GEN_SPAM_FEATRE

               *  0.2 -- GEN_SPAM_FEATRE

               *  0.2 -- MID_42HEX

               *  0.1 -- MFE_BAD_ST_W_MID_42HEX

               *  0 -- RV4429

Re: Spam messages meaning

These details are not published or in the public domain.

Would not recommend changing/editing spam rules - one reason is they can change very quickly as they are updated on the fly by the McAfee AntiSpam Rules Updater Service possibly every few minutes..

If you have an issue with spam score too low or genuine mail getting marked as spam then would suggest submissions to the AntiSpam Analysis team.

Check the Engine and rules version on the GSE screen - should be like 9309 for ensgine and todays date and time on the rules.

If up to date then would consider submission - you can do this by a mail or by using the spam submission tool.

Not the intention to modify the rules, more like we need to know why some e-mail are being blocked!
