Spamassassin scores are quie optimized. But you can fine tune the
scores based on your own requirements after observing the trend for a
few days

You can define your own spamassassin scores in the
.spamassassin/user_prefs file in your home directory. However, if you
want to modify the scores system wide (for all the users), the right
place is the /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf file.

Also have a look at:
