Content Filtering Issue
Problem reported by Joe Dellaragione - August 10, 2017 at 8:39 AM
So I have been trying to cut down on SPAM so I have the following set:
In AntiSpam a SPAM message with a weight of 50 or over gets the subject tagged with [JUNK]. This is working fine.
Then in CONTENT FILTERING I have the following rules
1. Spam Probability Low or Above > Copy message to spam@......
2. Spam Probability High > Delete Message
The first one is working, but the second is not. Spam messages labeled [JUNK] are being delivered to mailboxes. What could be the issue? The reason I want to delete it here and not in antispam is I first want a copy sent to the spam@ address so I can make sure good messages are not being incorrectly filtered.

I think I figured out my own question ...
Note: Content filters are executed in the order in which they appear in the list. Therefore, when a content filter gets triggered and performs an action on a message, no other content filtering is performed on that message. To change the order, click on the arrows next to a filter.
So I guess once the first message CC's a copy to SPAM it never moves on to the next rule which deletes it.
