Good day, Recently upgraded to newer version.  
My issue is that it has been several years since anyone has paid attention to the settings within the Spam Filter...   We have no idea, if what we have set, makes sense.. was delivered that way.. or needs to be reconsidered....

What we do know is we have a large percentage of spam that makes it through and a lot of false/positive  hits.   We are assuming its due to some our settings.

For instance... are these servers still correct?? and the best for MAPS??
bl.spamcop.net, true
cbl.abuseat.org, true
combined.njabl.org, true
dnsbl-2.uceprotect.net, true
dnsbl.sorbs.net, true
zen.spamhaus.org, true

We use SmarterMail email servers.....  and the number of MAPS, SURBLS and settins are alot different.

Just trying to determine  how to correct our low valid Spam Rejection or Identification rate, and reduce the number of false/positive hits that we have.

Thanks
