AntiSpam for a Mailbox

AntiSpam allows to trace, filter out and delete spam messages coming to your mailbox. (Not all accounts have this feature active)

When you enable AntiSpam for a mailbox, you can use AntiSpam preferences configured for a mail domain or configure it individually for a specific mailbox. The system does not delete messages recognized as spam. It only marks them as spam and delivers them in a regular way, which is why these messages also count against your summary traffic.



To enable spam protection for a mailbox:


Click the mailbox e-mail address in the E-mail list on the mail domain Controls page.


In the MAILBOX section check the AntiSpam box.
To use mail domain AntiSpam preferences, check the Use mail domain AntiSpam preferences box. Otherwise you'll have to configure it separately for this specific mailbox.


Click the Submit button at the bottom of the form.




To configure spam protection for a specific mailbox:


Enable spam protection for the mailbox.




Go back into the main e-mail menu to check and then select the AntiSpam icon in the Resources included column to set the preferences for AntiSpam for the mailbox:





On the AntiSpam preferences page:


Spam check level determines how aggressively spam will be filtered. AntiSpam filters analyze each email message as it passes through the gateway e-mail server and score it between 1 and 14. The larger the number the more likely it is considered to be spam:

·Very Aggressive: guarantees almost anything delivered to your mailbox will be legitimate. However you will lose a lot of email (rejects messages that score over 2)
Aggressive: guarantees anything delivered to you will be legitimate. Still a fair chance of false positives (rejects messages that score over 4)
Normal: might block some mailing lists messages (rejects messages that score over 7)
Relaxed: accepts semi-legitimate bulk mail (rejects messages that score over 10)
Permissive: accepts almost everything (rejects messages that score over 14)

The default value is usually 5, but this can be changed by the hosting system administrator.

· White List - sender e-mail addresses to accept
· Black List - sender e-mail addresses to reject

White and Black Lists have priority over the spam check level.

* you can use masks using '*' and '?'. For example: *, ?, *
* e-mail addresses or masks should be separated by ',' or ';' or 'ENTER' or 'TAB' or 'SPACE'.
