Thread: Default Spam Location

    Default Default Spam Location

    I have zimbra 4.5 installed on Ubuntu 7.04 and works perfectly.
    I have subscribed to some spam emails to see how effective zimbra's anti-spam is. I sent a GTUBE message and it never came through. Probably was blocked.

    Now, where do I see all blocked spam messages that never entered the user's mail box (like the GTUBE message)?

    Spam is not blocked it is removed (i.e. deleted) if it meets your anti-spam settings, check your logs to see what happened to it.

    No, deleted means got rid of as in - nuked! They are not there any more.

    You are not likely to have false positives deleted, they would be in your Junk folder as they 'might' be spam. I'd suggest you do some reading on what the anti-spam system in Zimbra does. You should check the documentation, wiki and search the forums for some information.

    Perhaps if you told us what you are trying to achieve or what your problem is someone might be able to offer advice.

    Have a read of the documentation and if you have any questions post again. In simple terma, the components in Zimbra are designed to remove spam that meets a certain 'kill score', that's the spam that will get deleted. Spam that meets a 'tag score' will be tagged as spam and end up in your Junk folder, that's where you will find any false positives, if there are any. You can modify the tag/kill percentages on the Admin UI/Global Settings/AS/AV page - do not change those setting if you don't understand what the implications are as you may delete email that should be kept.

    As I mentioned earlier, ask if you need help.
    Regards
