Kerio MailServer contains the SpamAssassin antispam filter. SpamAssassin is based on content analysis (spam messages usually contain specific attributes that can be searched for and evaluated by the filter). Each message is assigned a numeric score; if this value exceeds the limit set in Kerio MailServer, the message is marked as spam.
The spam filter may let some spam messages through from time to time by mistake (their score is low) and mark some regular messages as spam (their score is too high). For the reasons above, the antispam filter allows modification to the database used for recognition of spam messages. This method, however, requires user input. Users have to reassign the incorrectly evaluated messages to correct types (spam / non-spam) so that the filter learns to recognize them in the future.
