Configure SpamAssassin in Ensim

Posted by sureshm on October 27, 2007

First, you must sign into your user control panel:

<; (please substitute your actual domain name here)

You will be prompted to enter your username and password on this login page. Your username is the first part of your email address. So if your email address was “”, your username would be “suresh”.

Once signed in, click the “Spam Filtering” link, which is located on the left hand navigation menu. This will bring up the spam filter management area.

As you can see, there are four levels of sensitivity to choose from: Low, Medium, High and Custom. The lower the number, the more sensitive the filters will be, meaning that most of the spam will be detected, and it is possible that some legitimate messages will also be flagged as spam. The higher the number, the less sensitive it will be, allowing more messages to get through.

There are also several options for how you want spam handled for your account:

1. Deliver spam email to my inbox – All messages flagged as spam will come to your inbox where you can delete them manually.

2. Move spam email to my blocked folder – This option will automatically create a “Spam” folder, and all spam messages will be sent there. You can manually delete the contents of that folder at any time.

3. Delete spam email – All messages flagged as spam will be deleted immediately.

4. Add text to beginning of the subject – If you have chosen option 1 or 2, then enabling this will add your desired text to the beginning of the message subject to help you easily identify the message as spam.

5. Deliver spam as an attachment – If you have chosen option 1 or 2, then enabling this will send the spam as message attachments rather than a regular email.

Allowed Senders List: At the top of this page, there is a link for Allowed Senders List. That list is also known as a “whitelist”, and is available in case you ever see a message from a legitimate sender get picked up by the spam filters. You can simply add the sender’s address here, and future messages sent by them will not be considered spam.

Blocked Senders List: Similarly, if you ever receive a message that appears to be spam, but the message was not detected by the spam filters, you can add the sender’s address here so that future messages from that sender will be blocked automatically.
