Hi all,

I have pretty much everything activated to filter Spam in our Kerio Connect Mailserver:
- Blacklists
- SpamAssassin
- Caller ID
- Greylisting
- Spam Repellent

Now one of my colleagues forwarded me this mail he received:
From: <disregarding999<_at_>4dorganising.co.uk>
Subject: Nice medical store
Cheap prices!Get it now!

For me this is pretty obvious spam! Why doesn't Kerio recognize that?
[13/Jun/2013 15:58:00] Recv: Queue-ID: 51b9cfe8-000085fe, Service: SMTP, From: <disregarding999@4dorganising.co.uk>, To: <someone@mycompany.com>, Size: 956, Sender-Host:, SSL: yes, Subject: Nice medical store, Msg-Id: <51B9CE3A.803030<_at_>4dorganising.co.uk>

The Sender-Host is a bit strange: domain name pointer mforward.dtag.de.
Which is the mailer from our internet provider we use as fallback:
mycompany.com mail is handled by 10 kerio.mycompany.com.
mycompany.com mail is handled by 20 mforward.dtag.de.

Any ideas what I could optimize here?

EDIT: okay already fixed! I asked my colleague for the Sourcecode of that mail and is was actually detected and marked by our Spam filter because of Caller ID, I changed the settings so Caller ID will raise the Score up that such mails get blocked totaly.

again some spam

X-Spam-Status: No, hits=3.5 required=6.0 tests=BAYES_60: 3.515,TOTAL_SCORE: 3.515,autolearn=no

While mforward.dtag.de is the relay at our ISP and set to be second MX entry to our domain. So it should get only such mails, while our mailserver is down.
Does Kerio just not recognize it as SPAM, or is it okay, because all kinds of test like Greylisting and so on testing mforward.dtag.de and not the real origin IP?

The score in the MX setting is just a hint on which mail server to prefer, it is not illegal to use it anyway. Some spammers use the secondary because it often is less well guarded.
