HI
I would like to know some tips on fine-tuing SpamAsassin / MailScanner to block more spam.

I've used pretty much "out the box" settings up to now, and it only marks all the messages as spam. I activated SBL+XBL checks yet, I still receive e-mail from such sources, although I have the setting to mark such messages as "High Scoring" and have "delete" as the action for high scoring spam...

Also, I noticed in the config that you can quarantine spam and virus infected messages, however, how do users access these for revision?
