too much spam

    In our plesk, we have spamassassin on, and

    1/ settings >> server-wide mail preferences
    SPF spam protection = ON
    DNS zones for DNSBL service = ON
    DomainKeys spam protection = OFF. tried this before and it caused a few problems.

    2/ settings >> spam filter settings
    Switch on server-wide SpamAssassin spam filtering = ON
    Switch on server-wide greylisting spam protection = ON
    Apply individual settings to spam filtering = ON
    The maximum number of worker spamd processes to run (1-5) * = 2
    The score that a message must receive to qualify as spam * = 4
    Add the following text to the beginning of subject of each message recognized as spam = ****SPAM****

    Now this one mailbox spam filter score is set at 3 and he is still getting spam.

    The problem I find with blacklists and whilelists it is for domain/email addresses only. Spammers tend to use not real email addresses.

    Has anyone solved this problem and what did you use? Really need help.
