 : Identify Suspect Messages as Potentially Being Spam Email
Back to JSpamFilter Feature List Index
Previous Section Refuse, Block, Tag or Route to DeadLetter Mailbox Block Particular Attachments Next Section
When a message falls in the grey area of the spam email tests, JSpamFilter "tags" the subject line of the message with "[JSpamFilter]".

An example tagged subject line
This mechanism provides a way that allows for messages to be delivered to the end-user, but identified as likely being spam so that the end-user can use email client rules or filters to route the message to a particular folder for review (see image below for an example filter from Mozilla Thunderbird).

Thus the message is flagged as likely being spam, but delivered. This is another tool to avoid false positives. If the JSpamFilter filter file is customized, fewer valid messages are even tagged, but tagging allows for the possibility that either document structure and mark-up or content may cause a message to be identified as potentially being spam but not blocked.

Then a rule is established to route the mail: create a folder or directory in your email client (here we called the folder "[JSpamFilter]") and a rule that moves all mail with "[JSpamFilter]" in its subject line to that folder. You can call the folder anything you like (e.g., "quarantine").

Create a new rule that routes all messages with "[JSpamFilter]" in the message subject line to a folder in your inbox.


Configure the new rule to filter all incoming messages.
