ByPass threshold is a score in Xeams that makes the rules engine skip remaining filters once the score goes below this amount. For example, if you white list a sender by giving a -200 score, Xeams will not run anymore filters after hitting this rule. This is done by design to give a higher weight to rules having a negative score.
The default value of ByPass filter is set to -150. Therefore, once the score goes below -150, every other filter will be skipped and a message will be assigned a GOOD category.
Changing the default value
Modify $INSTALL_DIR\config\Profile_1.xml file.
Search for a line that reads:
Decrease the value to -5000
Save the file
If you have more than one profile, repeat the process for every profile. Additional profiles
will have file names like Profile_101.xml, Profile_102.xml and so on.
Once done, Xeams will not skip filtering unless the score goes below -5000.
