    admin.php?logs/spam-trigger

    How do I know the rules or why some applications have been marked as spam please?

    That log is the "why". The configuration would be done elsewhere, generally the "spam management" options.

    Do you have a specific question about what you see there?

    Searched that in admin search and no results. Where is it please?

    It's the option group "Spam Management" - <url>/admin.php?options/list/spam

    Cheers Mike. Ok our spam logger lists about 20 a month. Looking at the applicants details in them, they are eligible in my eyes and should not have been stopped. That's fine. But can I get an alert of something everything the spam systems stops a registration? Then I can double check them.

    Assuming it's StopForumSpam related, the options let you control what happens based on the number of triggers detected. If you choose to moderate them, you'll get a chance to manually approve the registration.

    We manually approve all applications anyway. But these don't come through. So I need to just change that in the settings then?

    Yes, though out of the box, a user has to trigger all 3 flags to be rejected. That's quite a strong flag that the user has a history of spam.
