I have been using SpamSieve for several years, and it has been phenomenally accurate. Lately, however, more and more junk is getting through - about 20 offers a day from Dr Oz, coffee beans, and dozens of lottery prizes!
I have my own domain at HostGator and have access to the SpamAssasin config file. After reading through the FAQs, it seems like SpamAssassin can be configured to further improve SpamSieve’s filtering capabilities:
Many mail hosts offer SpamAssassin or a similar filter. Make sure the filter is set not to add Junk or another tag to the message’s subject. Also, try to configure the filter not to move the messages out of the inbox. It is actually good if you can leave the filter on, but set so that it only tags the message’s headers (e.g. by adding X-Spam-Status and X-Spam-Report headers). This will allow SpamSieve to incorporate the work that the server filter has done into its analysis.
Could someone please elaborate on how to achieve this? I read through the syntax at:

Any help will be appreciated.
