Hi, everyone


Is this still an active spamassassin test?

No. It is a 'sandbox' rule that got auto-promoted at some point and was auto-demoted March 12. If you run sa-update daily and restart any persistent processes using the rules afterwards, you will keep up with those automatic changes.

header   __FSL_HAS_LIST_UNSUB  exists:List-Unsubscribe
describe FSL_BULK_SIG          Bulk signature with no Unsubscribe

Had some odd false positive due to its high score of 1,35...

It was a forgot password message... and it scored "Bulk signature with no

Which is probably not wrong. Password reset messages are usually quite similar to each other, just like a large fraction of spam, and there's little point in them having unsub links.

Seems strange as it depends on DCC, Razor, Pyzor, systems that I also see
score wrongly.

Those are all primarily distributed bulk detectors, rather than spam detectors. Currently they each score about 1, so even if they all hit simultaneously on non-spam bulk mail (which they rarely do) there needs to be something else spammy about a message to push it into the 'spam' classification with the standard threshold of 5. If you're using a lower threshold (as I do) you should have carefully-managed local rules and score adjustments, and have a valid reason to believe that your mail flow fits that divergence.
