Enabling SpamAssassin

Steps

"SpamAssassin is currently (DISABLED or ENABLED)."

If SpamAssassin is DISABLED, click on the Enable SpamAssassin button.

  1. You will see the following confirmation message:

"SpamAssassin is now: ENABLED"

  1. If you want your Spam emails to be filtered into a separate folder, you can set the system to send all emails marked as Spam to a Spam Box. To set this up, click on the Go Back link and continue on to Step 4 below.
  2. You will see the following message in the "Spam Box" section of the page:

"Spam Box is currently (DISABLED or ENABLED)."

If Spam Box is DISABLED, click on the Enable Spam Box button.

  1. You will see the following confirmation message:

At any point in the future, if you want to clear the Spam Box, click on the Clear Spam Box button. All emails marked as Spam will be deleted from the Spam Box folder entirely.

Advanced SpamAssassin Configuration

This feature allows you to rewrite subjects and is designed for the advanced user. Do not attempt to use this feature unless you are familiar with how subjects work when using SpamAssassin. To learn more about rewriting SpamAssassin subjects, view the web page at http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/SubjectRewrite.

To get started rewriting SpamAssassin subjects, click on the Configure SpamAssassin (required to rewrite subjects) button in the "SpamAssassin" section. Modify the subjects specific to your own personal preferences.
