Why are my spam analysis results so vague?


We know how frustrating this kind of testing can be.

We give our users all of the information we have on how filters
determine whether or not an email is marked as spam. You’ll see this
kind of information in our “Feedback Filter” section. Companies who
create and maintain these filters are tight-lipped about how they
function because they want to keep spam senders from circumventing them.
Many of the filters return no information at all except a pass/fail.

SpamAssassin, on the other hand, shares their spam score info, which may be a point of insight into how these filters operate.

Unfortunately, we’re not equipped to do deliverability consultation beyond our testing services. Please check out our blogs on Postini, SpamAssassin and Barracuda for more information on how to read the info returned by these filters.
