    Thats normal. You have to lower the treshold to receive less spam.

    Spamassassin works this way:

    1) Many tests are run on every email to detect if it is spam.
    2) Every test has a score, if the test is positive the score of this test is added to the score of the message.
    3) You will get a resulting score from e.g. 1.5 + 2 + 1 = 4.5
    4) If your spam treshold in ISPConfig is equal or below 4.5 the message is handled as spam.
