Modifying Anti-Spam Rules
To modify default anti-spam rule behavior:
On the sidebar of the Policy tab, click
The Anti-Spam Options page is displayed.
Click the name of the rule that you want to modify.
The editable settings for the selected rule are displayed in drop-down lists or editable text boxes.
Make the desired modifications.
The editable settings and their available options are:
- Rule State: Select Auto,
Enabled, or Disabled.
NoteBy default, rules are set to Auto, which sets the state of the rule according to whether there is a value in the rule's Weight or Probability Adjust % text box. If both scores are zero, the rule has no effect.
- Weight: The value (or "weight") added to the message's total spam score when the message matches this rule. Values can be either positive or negative; prefix negative numbers with a minus symbol. For more information about how scores are calculated, see "Test Scores" in the Policy section of the Administrator's Reference.
- Probability Adjust %: The absolute probability for the rule in the form of a percentage. When the total spam score is calculated for the message, rules with weights are first converted to a percentage, and then rules with absolute probabilities are added. If both a rule weight and a probability adjustment percentage are specified, the rule weight is first converted to a percentage, and then the value in the Probability Adjust % text box is added to determine the total weight for that rule.
- Rule State: Select Auto, Enabled, or Disabled.
- Once you have modified the rule behavior to your requirements, click Save at the bottom of the page.
