How To Use the Anti Spam System and Set Preferences for the Anti Spam System
   

Spam tagging system preferences are located at http://email.yourdomain.com (substitute yourdomain.com with your domain name) - login there with your mailbox login ID and password. Make sure to select English (and any other languages you use in your email communication.

You need to enable the spam filter if you want to use the anti spam system, and then you need to specify if you want messages identified as spam to be tagged as spam in your subject line or if you want them to go into another email account (such as you can create a junkmail@ email account for this purpose for you or your entire office), or if you want it deleted. We recommend you check the junk mail for a month or so which will give you time to "whitelist" valid email addresses that are getting identified as spam incorrectly in the rules area of the http://email.yourdomain.com . If you get to the point where you never get any mistakenly spam tagged messages it would be your choice at that time to have the messages be automatically deleted or if you check them.

You can access a junkmail@ account using the webmail system, or with a regular email program that you use. Also if you want the spam to be tagged in the subject line and not emailed to any other account, you can setup a rule in your email program to move the spam tagged messages into a junkmail folder or your deleted folder - in this case leave the zero in the "Send spam messages to" field.

Don't forget to click on update when you are finished setting up your anti spam system settings. There is no logout button so you will close your browser at that time. And you can go into the anti spam settings at any time to change your preferences. The http://email.yourdomain.com and the https://www4.usbusinessweb.net:8443 control panels both work on a per mailbox user basis, so everyone in your company can control their own email account if you want them to.

==============================================================================

Regarding http://email.yourdomain.com spam filter preferences for each mailbox account -- login with your full email address, and your email password.

If you increase the number from 5.0 to a higher number - it will loosen the spam tagging threshhold.

But to whitelist particular domains and email addresses - add rules at the bottom of the page.

*@microsoft.com allows any email address from microsoft.com to bypass the spam filter.

bill.gates@microsoft.com only allows bill to be bypassed in the spam filter rules.

*@*.microsoft.com allows machine names of microsoft - for instance if you got an email from customers@mail.microsoft.com . It is always a good idea if you are allowing a whole domain to bypass the spam filter - to add the rule both ways.

To tighten the spam rules threshold - lower the number to a number lower than 5.0 .

What i do is in Outlook, i created a rule - which will move any message with SPAM in the subject line into the deleted folder. Then i check that folder a few times a day before emptying it. 99 percent of the messages in the deleted folder are spams so i peruse that folder quickly for "false positives." Then I whitelist the address from the message that is a the false positive. Over time it there should be less and less false positives. (False positives being jargon for valid messages mistakenly identified as
spam.)

The anti spam system does not work on redirects, only on mailbox (pop3/imap) accounts. Both redirects and mailbox accounts on Linux servers www4 and www5 get anti virus scanning protection on the email messages though.
