Thread: Spam Guard

  1. #1

    Spam Guard

    I am acting as a reseller .
    Nowdays in all my domain mailboxes , i have been getting a lot of spams . there is a spam guard filter in my server ( as per the information provided to me )

    I would like to know .. how can i verify if there is any spam guard and secndly is there any other way of controlling the spams in my domains

    i suppose you will need to contact your hosting provider to verify this and ask them for details on custom controlling the spams via user end as some host provider limit the accessibility and the spam control is server wide.

    You can use sa-learn command. Given a typical selection of your incoming mail classified as spam or ham (non-spam), this tool will feed each mail to SpamAssassin, allowing it to 'learn' what signs are likely to mean spam, and which are likely to mean ham.
