WEIGHT10 Our spam filtering software will assign a total weight to email message based on the particular tests that have failed. WEIGHT10 reflects a very low total weight, which means that more SPAM would be caught using this keyword, although a lot of legitimate mail may also be caught.
WEIGHT15 This is similar to WEIGHT10 only with a higher threshold to catch less SPAM, but also eliminate some false positives (legit mail) from being junked.
WEIGHT20 This is similar to WEIGHT10 and WEIGHT15 only with a higher threshold to catch less SPAM, but also eliminate most false positives (legit mail) from being junked.
