Anti-spam overview

The anti-spam options in PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange enable you to set policies for spam and suspected spam. You can set a global policy for each category of spam and you can also specify exceptions to that policy. These exceptions may have different actions specified for them.

Click Configuration > Transport (SMTP) Scanning policy, and then click Anti-spam.

By default, anti-spam scanning for inbound messages is enabled. The Inbound Messages bar is blue, and the associated icon displays a check mark and the word ON. If the menu bar is red, spam scanning for inbound mail is disabled. Click the OFF icon or circled alert icon to enable scanning. The inbound messages bar becomes blue and the icon displays ON.
