When the SmarterMail server receives an email, it will evaluate emails by running various checks against the message. For each check that the message fails, its respective weight is added to the overall score of the email message. This mechanism is used to determine whether the message falls into the Low, Medium or High probability ranges. If the spam "score" is over 40 then email will be blocked and returned to the sender.
