Hi John*

>>I take it the [?] means you didn't understand what I was trying to

>>I'd be happy to try again, if you wish to understand what "niceness"
means.*

Sorry didn't realise, it was meant to be a smiley symbol ;-) but was
replaced by a question mark instead.

In essence, from what you're saying, the niceness level in spamassassin will
dictate the priority
of processing. I'm assuming the higher the niceness level its set, the least
priority it has?

Should I be setting this or can it be left out? My server is only running
running Exim, Apache
(for only one website) and SA

Also I've set the timeout to 60secs:

=====
SPAMD_OPTS="-m 6 -H -u mail --timeout-child=60"
=====

Does this mean that SA will scan the message for up to 60seconds before it
is let through?
In essence what will happen to the message after the timeout set? will the
message just be let through?

Many thanks :-)
