Spam Assassin flagging MIB own messages

The MIB notification messages have started to be flagged by Spam Assassin within the MIB server!

* -1.0 ALL_TRUSTED Passed through trusted hosts only via SMTP
* 3.5 BAYES_99 BODY: Bayes spam probability is 99 to 100%
* [score: 1.0000]
* 0.2 BAYES_999 BODY: Bayes spam probability is 99.9 to 100%
* [score: 1.0000]
* 0.0 HTML_MESSAGE BODY: HTML included in message
* 0.1 DKIM_SIGNED Message has a DKIM or DK signature, not necessarily
* valid
* -0.1 DKIM_VALID Message has at least one valid DKIM or DK signature
* -0.1 DKIM_VALID_AU Message has a valid DKIM or DK signature from
* author’s domain
* 1.0 PDS_FROM_NAME_TO_DOMAIN From:name looks like To:domain
* 1.5 PDS_FRNOM_TODOM_NAKED_TO Naked to From name equals to Domain

How can this be and how to resolve?


Quit sending messages that have all of the characteristics of spam.

I’d recommend that you send a copy of the same exact message to the address given you at and then read their feedback.

Ha ha. Very helpful.

The point is that mail in a box is sending me its own notification messages which it itself via Spam Assassin that it installed is flagging as spam.


IT happened to be initially early on.

My understanding is that it tracks what you do with the message as well - so if you move the message from spam folder to inbox a couple of times it will get the signal that this isn’t spam.

After doing that a bit it hasn’t happened since. Could be coincidence and a bit hard to scientifically test
