[just a note about the mailing list and SPAM checks]
Hello. The messages sent to a mailing list are checked by the spam filters. BUT. Even if the mail is flagged as SPAM it is delivered anyway. So this is totally useless.
I think around two years ago I wrote a long speech in a ticket about this, and the ticket got closed saying it was on some todo list. Never heard anything since.
We had to rely on frontend spam checkers to prevent this issue (spams sent to mailing lists) and many other issues as SmarterTools did not provide a solution.
Last answer from support before our ticket about this subject was closed.

Just wanted to ask if, in SmarterMail 17/100/MAPI BETA, the mailing list still aren't checked against SPAM ?
Actually we have some customers that gets their mailing list spammed (total spam weight 40+) and they are spoofing the sender from address so it matches an autorised poster of the mailing list.
I tried to find an option for mailing lists where you can say to drop posts to the mailing list if spam weight is LOW or MED or HIGH without sucess.
Is there a way to prevent this to happen ?
