(FAQ) MDaemon 11.x: How to create spam filters in WorldClient

This article explains how to configure WorldClient to route flagged email to a specific folder.

There are two methods to set up WorldClient to filter spam messages to a certain folder: one that will add an IMAP filter to all accounts on the server so that any spam message will be routed to the local recipient's Junk Email folder, and the other being users setting up their own rule, if they wish to use a different folder or perform a different action on spam messages.

You may filter messages that are considered spam by MDaemon's spam-filter, or by the DNS blacklist feature. To enable filtering of messages considered spam by the spam-filter, do the following:

  1. Open the MDaemon console and click on the Security menu.
  2. Click Spam Filter...
  3. Check Move spam into user's IMAP spam folder automatically.
  4. Click Yes in the dialog-box that appears asking to create the filter in everyone's accounts on the server.
  5. Click OK.

To enable filtering of messages that fail a DNS blacklist check, do the following:

  1. Open the MDaemon console and click on the Security menu.
  2. Click Spam Filter...
  3. Click the box next to DNS-BL on the left.
  4. Select Options under DNS-BL.
  5. Check 'Auto-filter black-listed mail into user's spam folder' .
  6. Click Yes in the dialog-box that appears asking to create the filter in everyone's accounts on the server.
  7. Click OK.

By logging into WorldClient, clicking on Options | Filters, and modifying the rule(s), users can change the destination of spammed or blacklisted IPs emails.

Additional Comments

Note: This will enable users to access messages in other folders. If your users are using POP, enabling this option is not recommended.
