​It is not $sa_tag2_level_deflt that determines whether message is
quarantined, this only determines whether to add 'spam detected' headers in
the emails.

Score above $sa_kill_level_deflt​ triggers evasive action (i.e. according
to $spam_quarantine_method).

Also I am not sure you can rely on getting same spam calculation when you
re-test a quarantined email as when it arrives from outside, perhaps this
is why header shows score of 7.946 but retest only 1.9?
