SpamAssassin Rule: ALL_TRUSTED

Standard description: Passed through trusted hosts only via SMTP

Explanation

"Trusted" does not mean "trusted to not send spam." It means "trusted to not forge Received: headers."

If your message hits on the ALL_TRUSTED rule, it means that all of the Received: headers in the message were inserted by SMTP relays you have indicated are "TrustedRelays" and the "from" part of the Received: header is also from one of your "TrustedRelays"; consequently, no tests of the source of the message (for example, tests against DNSBlocklists) will be performed.

If that message is obviously spam, and you think it should have been caught by DNS tests, then your trust path is configured incorrectly. See TrustPath and FixingAllTrusted.

Further Info

The default scores for this rule can be found in the online list of tests.
