AntispamBelow you will find a quick guide to creating an antispam filter based on the capability of CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO. All companies of the modern day are bombarded daily with unsolicited mail called SPAM. CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO provides a quick and easy way of dealing with this problem.
To create a new rule click Add in the List of rules pane. Next, provide the name for the rule in Add new rule dialog box e.g. Antispam and confirm by clicking OK.
A new rule named Antispam will show in the List of rules while the right pane will show the property tabs for the rule (Fig.1.).
|Fig.1. The property tabs of the Antispam rule.|
The rule tabs i.e. Overview, Conditions, Actions, Exceptions, Options are used to tune how the rule should work. Now you need to perform a few simple steps inside the tabs in order to configure the rule.
Overview. This tab is used to provide a comment describing the rule. Also, it will be updated with data from all remaining tabs as you configure them.
Conditions. In the Conditions tab choose the conditions that will trigger the rule if a message matches the defined criteria. To add a condition click Add and select the Sensitive Content Filter from the menu. The right pane will show the properties for this condition. Because we want to stop receiving junk mail check the Spam dictionary on the list (Fig.2.). That is all you need to configure in the Conditions tab to set up the antispam filter.

Exceptions. The Exceptions tab is used to define the criteria for the rule that if met by a message should exclude it from processing by the given rule. Because we do not want to define any exceptions, this tab will be empty.
Options. The Options tab is used to configure the settings related to the current rule. This tab can be left without any configuration.
The rule is ready to use. Click Save in the main window of the program to approve all recent changes. Once the rule is saved it begins to operate and all messages containing phrases characteristic of spam will be blocked.
