Some brief recommendation to run your ASSP Deluxe.

    Upgrade ASSP WHM , ASSP Deluxe and ASSP Deluxe frontend to latest version.

    Upgrade to ASSP to latest version 1.9 ( if you are upgrading from a version older than 1.9.x read HERE )  or latest ASSP 2.x

    Did you ever apply post installation steps http://www.grscripts.com/howtofaq.html#16 ?

    Go to WHM cPanel/Services and be sure that the alternative exim port is NOT checked/used .Alternative port
    is set by ASSP web interface. Is spamd/spamassassin service fully disabled too ?

    Be sure "Latest RBL/uriBLs" is set to ENABLED in your ASSP WHM interface  

    Be sure you are using clamd signatures => http://www.grscripts.com/tweaking.html#8

    Only if too much spam is passing go to ASSP WHM > SCORE SETTINGS and set
    Bayesian filter score to 44 max 45 and leave MessageScoringUpperLimit to 45. Save Settings . Be sure to notify your customer that they
    can change spam sensibility for each domain using his cPanel > ASSP deluxe frontend > spam sensibility.

    Only if too much good email are blocked go to ASSP WHM > SCORE SETTINGS and set
    Bayesian filter score to 40 max 45 and set MessageScoringUpperLimit to 50 max 60. Save Settings . Be sure to notify your customer that they
    can change spam sensibility for each domain using his cPanel > ASSP deluxe frontend > spam sensibility .
