The Report as spam web mail option allows web mail users to mark messages as spam and have an action perform on them.  The following table lists the actions that can be undertaken when a webmail user marks a message as being spam:

Setting

Explanation

Use post office settings      

Use the post office level setting, 

Move spam to post office reported folder    

The post office reported folder is:

Mail Enable\Post offices\[post office]\mail root\SPAM\Reported

Move spam to global spam folder

The global spam folder is the one selected under the Report as spam option.

Delete message

Any message that is marked as spam will be deleted.

Mark the sender IP as spam source   

Extracts the sending IP address of the message from the headers of the message and creates 2 records in the following locations:

Config\Postoffices\Postoffice\Connections\Spam

Config\Connections\Spam

The SMTP connector (and custom filters) can then use these records to determine whether or not to refuse mail from the IP address.

 

This action is configured in the administration program either globally or at a post office level. Global settings will override post office settings.
