ME020462 - TRB: How to mark a message in SpamAssassin and have MailEnable deliver it to the Junk E-Mail folder for mailboxes


In the details section of this article it is explained how to use SpamAssassin to mark a message as possible spam then use the MailEnable internal deliver to Junk E-mail functionality to move the message to a mailbox "Junk E-mail" folder. This article only applies when you are using an external SpamAssassin filter that adds the X-Spam-Flag header. This article does not apply when using the built in SpamAssassin filtering.


Use the configuration of SpamAssassin to mark a message as spam when it meets a criteria within the program. When this is configured within SpamAssassin the header line of:

"X-Spam-Flag: YES"

is added to a message it deemed to be spam.  After SpamAssassin has added this line it is possible to use MailEnable to create a filter that executes an action when this line is found in the header. 

Here is the filter that would be required:


Where a message header contains specific words = X-Spam-Flag: YES


Mark as spam
