NAME
       Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Shortcircuit - short-circuit evaluation for
       certain rules

SYNOPSIS
         loadplugin     Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Shortcircuit

         report Content analysis details:   (_SCORE_ points, _REQD_ required, s/c _SCTYPE_)

         add_header all Status "_YESNO_, score=_SCORE_ required=_REQD_ tests=_TESTS_ shortcircuit=_SCTYPE_ autolearn=_AUTOLEARN_ version=_VERSION_"

DESCRIPTION
       This plugin implements simple, test-based shortcircuiting.
       Shortcircuiting a test will force all other pending rules to be
       skipped, if that test is hit.

       Recomended usage is to use "priority" to set rules with strong S/O
       values (ie.  1.0) to be run first, and make instant spam or ham
       classification based on that.

CONFIGURATION SETTINGS
       The following configuration settings are used to control
       shortcircuiting:

       shortcircuit SYMBOLIC_TEST_NAME {ham|spam|on|off}
           Shortcircuiting a test will force all other pending rules to be
           skipped, if that test is hit.

           Recomended usage is to use "priority" to set rules with strong S/O
           values (ie.  1.0) to be run first, and make instant spam or ham
           classification based on that.

           To override a test that uses shortcircuiting, you can set the
           classification type to "off".

           on  Shortcircuits the rest of the tests, but does not make a strict
               classification of spam or ham.  Rather, it uses the default
               score for the rule being shortcircuited.  This would allow you,
               for example, to define a rule such as

                 body TEST /test/
                 describe TEST test rule that scores barely over spam threshold
                 score TEST 5.5
                 priority TEST -100
                 shortcircuit TEST on

               The result of a message hitting the above rule would be a final
               score of 5.5, as opposed to 100 (default) if it were classified
               as spam.

           off Disables shortcircuiting on said rule.

           spam
               Shortcircuit the rule using a set of defaults; override the
               default score of this rule with the score from
               "shortcircuit_spam_score", set the "noautolearn" tflag, and set
               priority to "-100".  In other words, equivalent to:

                 shortcircuit TEST on
                 priority TEST -100
                 score TEST 100
                 tflags TEST noautolearn

           ham Shortcircuit the rule using a set of defaults; override the
               default score of this rule with the score from
               "shortcircuit_ham_score", set the "noautolearn" and "nice"
               tflags, and set priority to "-100".   In other words,
               equivalent to:

                 shortcircuit TEST on
                 priority TEST -100
                 score TEST -100
                 tflags TEST noautolearn nice

       shortcircuit_spam_score n.nn (default: 100)
           When shortcircuit is used on a rule, and the shortcircuit
           classification type is set to "spam", this value should be applied
           in place of the default score for that rule.

       shortcircuit_ham_score n.nn (default: -100)
           When shortcircuit is used on a rule, and the shortcircuit
           classification type is set to "ham", this value should be applied
           in place of the default score for that rule.

TAGS
       The following tags are added to the set available for use in reports,
       headers etc.:

         _SC_              shortcircuit status (classification and rule name)
         _SCRULE_          rulename that caused the shortcircuit
         _SCTYPE_          shortcircuit classification ("spam", "ham", "default", "none")
