    SpamAssassin Tool

    What is the SpamAssassin Tool?

    The ONTRAPORT Email Builder is equipped and integrated with SpamAssassin spam scoring. This program works as an email/spam filter and uses sophisticated spam detection techniques to scan your emails before they go out and points out aspects of your emails (whether it be content, links, the subject line, the from address, or anything else) that may universally be considered spam by email and internet service providers. The higher the amount of spammy/questionable content, the higher the spam score. This in turn gives you a chance to further edit your emails before you send them to your contacts and ensures superb email delivery for us and you.



    How to Use the SpamAssassin Tool

    Score Your Email

    1. Write your email in the Email Builder

    2. Click Spam Score


    3. A window with your spam score results will pop up. Take note of your results and make adjustments if necessary.

    What Does My Spam Score Mean?

    The lower your spam score the better. ONTRAPORT won’t send any emails with a score of 5 or higher. Anything above that runs a high risk of delivery issues and filtering of your message by ISPs. That isn’t to say that an email with a spam score of 5 or below is guaranteed not to be filtered everywhere, but it highly reduces the likelihood of any delivery roadblocks.


    Don’t be frustrated if you’ve tried everything to get your score down to 0, it’s not always possible. Check below for some great sources on getting a dignified spam score.
