Can a mail client add the address of a spam sender to the Spam Filtering blacklist?
When a spam message is received by the mail client of a WorkgroupMail user, the user may wish to add the address to the blacklist.
This is possible by using Spam Filtering in conjunction with a specific rule in Content Filtering, such as the one below
Note: Content Filtering is integrated into WorkgroupMail v8 and WorkgroupMail v7 Enterprise, but for WorkgroupMail v7 Professional the Content Filtering plug-in needs to be installed and licenced. If you do not have the Content filtering plug-in then it is recommended that you upgrade to WorkgroupMail v8. Click here for details.
To permit a mail client to add an address to the blacklist in WorkgroupMail, create a rule as follows:
Auto add spammer to blacklist
Check all messages. If message sent to *email@example.com* Add non-local recipients to the blacklist and delete message
When a client receives a spam message that has passed through the Spam Filtering in WorkgroupMail, they should reply to the message and also copy it to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. The spam senders email address will be automatically added to the Spam Filtering blacklist and the reply will be deleted by the Content Filtering plug-in. Note that blacklist is an arbitrary name and mydomain.com should be replaced by a local domain. This should be a unique address not used elsewhere in the mail server.
