Implement Bruce's spam settings as default.
Idea shared by Steve Reid - September 30, 2014 at 5:40 AM
Under Consideration
I think it's about time the default spam settings within smartermail get an update.
Can't most or all of Bruce's spam settings be configured out of the box? Or at least an option in the wizard that implements all of them.

Note to all:  I am still in the process of fine-tuning this - especially after the major improvements made in the most recent public release of SmarterMail.
I apologize to all of those who have been so faithful in supporting me, but major health issues, still undiagnosed, are taking their toll in my strength and ability to work 20 hours per day.  Hopefully, a trip to the doctor, and possible hospitalization for a barrage of tests, will uncover the reasons for these unknown issues which have plagued me for the last three years.
I am still working to support clients (desperately needing the money to pay for healthcare and insurance costs), and the forced slow-down may actually be making me more attune to some of the antispam issues we all encounter.
Again, thank you, to each and every one of you, especially the incredible support and programming group, at SmarterTools, who have continued to allow me to work with you during these trying times.
For the most recent version of my antispam document, hopefully to be updated late next week, see:
Some of my methods might be considered "draconian" - and restricting users and domain admins from making changes is never popular, but the antispam settings work very well - especially when you ditch all of the external tools and run exclusively with the SmarterTools antispam, Greylisting, and DMARC!

To broaden this request, give us the ability to export and import spam configs directly from the web UI and perhaps consider adding this functionality to the other config areas as well
