    Spam Protection
    In This Topic

    Spam protection within is a weighted filtering system that accumulates points for each factor of a message that could be considered spam. The spam protection values can be found in the spam protection service under the Messaging Manager in your MailEnable Administration Program.

    Eg: MailEnable Managament > Messaging Manager > Spam Protection

    The goal here is to find a perfect balance of points per message for your spam.  Each one of the values  would not necessarily be deem a message as spam on its own but if several fail then the chance of the message being scored as spam is considerably higher.

    Note: This filter by default will do nothing to the message except add a header line to the message.  One of the following lines will be added to the header depending on the score of points compared to the threshold you set in the spam protection:
    X-ME-Spam: Low
    X-ME-Spam: Medium
    X-ME-Spam: High

    The actions to these header lines can be either configured in Enterprise at a post office level by searching for the above lines in the header or they can be configured by each customer in the web mail Spam Protection options of a web mail login.
    Here is an article that helps with testing this service and explains a little more about its usage:
