How To Configure Spam Submit

The Bayesian filter included in our antispam engines can be trained in two ways: a) by running bdsafe on a set of known spam/ham e-mails, b) via the Spam Submit feature. In this article, we will focus on Spam Submit and the steps that need to be taken in order to set it up.

First, you need to add two accounts to your mail server, the spam user account and the ham user account.
