Configure Outbound Spam Blocking

SmarterMail provides the option to scan outgoing messages for spam. This is useful in the event that an account on the SmarterMail server is compromised and being used as a spam relay. By configuring outbound spam checks, you can help prevent your mail server from being blacklisted.

Applies to SmarterMail 8.x to 15.x

  5. Select the SMTP Blocking tab.
  6. Set the Outgoing Weight Threshold at the level you wish to block outgoing spam at and check the Enabled checkbox next to it.
