The highest one I could find in my archive of spam was 44.1[*]. I've
since started rejecting anything with a score over 10 after DATA on the
smtp level. However, my rejectlog says that the highest score it has
rejected is thirty something (can't remember exact number now).

[*] I have vague memories of seeing higher scores than this, but I can't
    remember for sure.

Uh, this I don't know. Just over 5 I think. Though, the non-spam-ness
was questionable...
