    27273. In the case of the AWL rule (i.e. SpamAssassin's [http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/AutoWhitelist Auto-Whitelist] feature), the score will always show up as 1.000 in the Mail Viewer.  That's because the score value of the AWL rule is dynamic--SpamAssassin assigns a different score each time the AWL rule is triggered, so there's no way for Maia to know what that value is for any given e-mail.  The AWL rule is special--it's supposed to be scored according to the "reputation" of the sender, so that if the sender has a history of sending you spam, the AWL rule score should be higher, and if he has a history of sending you non-spam the score should be lower.  In the example above, for instance, we could guess that the AWL rule actually scored somewhere around -0.603 (1.2 - 1.803), if all the rules and scores in Maia's database are current.

     294. Similarly, if you are using [wiki:OCRmain OCR] to scan text, the score for that rule will always show up as 1.000 in the Mail Viewer, as it too, is dynamic.  If a rule triggers both AWL and an OCR rule, then it is no longer possible to determine the actual score.

     33There is upcoming support to log the actual score assigned, thanks to some new functionality within SpamAssassin. When this is completed, then the dynamic scores will not cause any more questions.
