Import / Export Spam Settings from One SmarterMail Server to Another

This article applies to versions 15.x-16.x. View articles for recent versions.

For enterprise organizations, ISPs or other businesses that manage multiple mail server installations, keeping spam settings consistent across those servers has its challenges. SmarterMail, however, makes it easy to use the same set of antispam rules for all of the mail servers across your organization by containing global spam settings in a single JSON file. This allows administrators to configure a solid set of antispam rules on one server, then easily upload that server's antispam JSON to any SmarterMail server - right from the Web interface! As an added bonus, email administrators can even work together to create and share their own antispam JSON files, combining their experience and understanding to create the most reliable settings available.
