How is TotalSpamWeight calculated?

Hello everybody
I use SM15 and in the last few weeks a lot of good mails are marked as spam. When I look at the header I find something like this:
X-SmarterMail-Spam: SPF_Pass, Bayesian Filtering, SpamAssassin -6 [raw: -5], DK_None, DKIM_Pass, URIBL - Red:4
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: Content analysis details:   (-5.7 points, 5.0 required)

I don't understand why I get a TotalSpamWeight of 24. How is this calculated?
