I am a first-time user of SpamAssasin. While testing content for a client I
received the below results:


0.6 HTML_90_100 BODY: Message is 90% to 100% HTML 
0.9 HTML_IMAGE_RATIO_04 BODY: HTML has a low ratio of text to image area 
2.3 HTML_IMAGE_ONLY_12 BODY: HTML: images with 800-1200 bytes of words 
2.1 HTML_MISSING_CTYPE Message is HTML without HTML Content-Type 
2.3 HTML_SHORT_LINK_IMG_2 HTML is very short with a linked image 

Can anyone tell me where I can get explanations or reasons why the scores
are high? Are these tactics used by spammers?


I appreciate any insight this group can provide, even if it's a link to a
page where I can get information so I can explain to my clients that these
are bad practices they should change.


Thanks very much for your help.


Kind Regards,
