Thank you for the answer.

Yes, you are right. Anyway I set ‘$sa_kill_level_deflt = 6.31’ too in amavis configuration.

I could agree for the differnce of the score of the message assigned by amavis and the score of the SA test of the quarantined message..

But, I would like to understand why amavis assigns a so high score (7.946) to a harmless message ..

Even after the changes done to the amavis configuration, I still notice that some messages has been blocked as SPAM. For example:

Jul 18 12:04:55 zzz amavis[18242]: (18242-14) Blocked SPAM {DiscardedInbound,Quarantined}, []:39849 [] <orderfleet at example.org<mailto:orderfleet at example.org>> -> <iagrossi at example.net<mailto:iagrossi at example.net>>, quarantine: B/spam-BknEtFAN2Yh1.gz, Queue-ID: 31099D5C4B, Message-ID: <OF2B08DA46.86F90238-ON80258161.003760D6 at leaseplancorp.net<mailto:OF2B08DA46.86F90238-ON80258161.003760D6 at leaseplancorp.net>>, mail_id: BknEtFAN2Yh1, Hits: 7.946, size: 170434, 551 ms

while the score I get while testing the messages is much lower that $sa_tag2_level_deflt (1.9 < 6.31):

Where is the problem? Why the message is tagged as SPAM and quarantined?

​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?
