To conduct a Message Spam Check, please follow the steps below:

MCC Account Dashboard > Email Marketing > Messages > View Messages > Select your desired message > click on Check Message Score > Input your message Subject >  click Check Message Score button

For fixing detected items, unfortunately, there is no available Spam Assassin rule set information and solutions out there that we can use. As of the moment, these are the only information I can provide regarding our message score feature.

Our message check system is based on Spam Assassin which is only used by a few email systems. These message check features are not the same antispam filters that major ISPs use such as AOL, YAHOO, GMAIL, HOTMAIL, etc.

SpamAssassin is an open-source, content-matching spam filter from the Apache Software Foundation. SpamAssassin uses several different filtering techniques to catch spam, including DNS blocklists, text analysis, Bayesian filtering, and collaborative filtering databases.It uses a scoring system and plug-ins to analyze your email header and the email body copy. The filter then produces a header that outlines your SpamAssassin score and how your email performed against its various checks. Spam Assassin will provide you with a breakdown of the score. The more items in the message that trigger the Spam Assassin rule set, the higher the spam score will be.

Generally, your email should have a score of 5.0 or lower to be considered passing.
