Acceptable Spam Assassin Score

by 4 comments
I'm new to the world of autoresponders and list building and need a little help from those with more experience than me.

I'm using GetResponse and a couple of my messages are getting scores of 2.1 - 2.5 according to Spam Assassin.

It says my message may get flagged as spam but when I run tests they come through ok.

So is this a bad enough score to rewrite the messages in question? Just curious as to what everyone has experienced from real world experience.

    Are you using html or too many links?

    Usually if the spam score is above 2 it's because your link to word density is too high.

    I try to bring that down before I send any newsletter out - just to be on the safe side.

      Actually, I just read the message again from Spam Assassin and it says:

      "Your mail will be probably NOT recognized as SPAM. "

      I just misread what it said but I am still curious to know what others experiences are.


      I am using both html and text. I don't think their are too many links but I will play around with that and see.
