This article will help you how to set override Spam filtering for a particular email account in SmarterMail 16

  4. You can set actions for the following options:

    1. Low Probability of Being Spam.

    2. Medium Probability of Being Spam.

    3. High Probability of Being Spam.

      Action

      When you override the spam options set by your system administrator, you can choose the actions that are taken when an email comes in that has a low, medium, or high probability of being spam. For each spam level, choose the action you wish to have taken. If you choose to add text to the subject line of messages, type the text in the box below the action drop down.Note: If you are using the default spam options that were set up by your administrator, these settings cannot be edited.



      Weight

      Each type of spam check has an associated weight that factors into the spam probability of a message. When an email comes in, all of the checks listed are run, and for each check that the message fails, the weight is added to the overall score of the email. The thresholds for each spam probability are examined, and the email is placed into the appropriate category.



  5. Click on the option to set the action you want, below actions are available for the above options:

    - No Action

    - Delete Message

    - Move to Junk email folder

    - Add Text to Subject

    04-spam-option

    05-spam-option

    06-delete-option

  6. And finally, click on Save to apply changes.
