How to add a spam filter?

To add a new spam filter :

Spam filters identify and sort or delete unsolicited email, commonly known as spam. You can also use this interface to configure your whitelist and blacklist settings as per your requirement.

Process New Emails and Mark them as Spam :

Set this toggle to enabled to identify potential spam.
Apache SpamAssassin examines every message and calculates a spam score.
This calculated spam score helps determine the likelihood that a message contains spam.

Move New Spam to a Separate Folder (Spam Box):

Set this toggle to enabled to configure the Exim service to create a spam folder the next time that you receive spam mail.
Spam Box sends any message with a calculated spam score that exceeds the spam threshold score to this folder.

Automatically Delete New Spam (Auto-Delete):

Set this toggle to enabled to automatically delete messages that meet or exceed the Auto-Delete Threshold Score value.

Additional settings :

Whitelist (Emails Always Allowed) :

Whitelists allow you to receive email from an email address that Apache SpamAssassin falsely marks as spam.

1. Click Add A New “whitelist_from” Item to add an email address.

3. Click the cancel icon (Cancel) to remove a whitelist_from entry.
