SPAMfighter Exchange Module

Yes – you can redirected spam to a dedicated mailbox. You can configure SEM to redirect spam to another mailbox through the Administration Module (under “Configuration” > “Policies”)

Go to “Configuration” -> “Usergroups” and click the “Edit” button next to your group.

Under “Default state”, uncheck the SPAMfighter and Virusfighter checkbox, so that the filters are not enabled by default for new mailboxes.

If you receive many emails that appear to have been sent by yourself, then you can help prevent spoofed emails by removing your own domain(s) from the Domain whitelist.

In the Administration module, go to “Configuration” > “Policies”. Click the “Configure policy” button next to your policy. Then click the “Configure filter” button next to “SPAMfighter Sender Filter”. Remove your own domain name from the Domain whitelist, and your own email address from the Email Address whitelist.

If you have questions or need help on doing this, SPAMfighter Support Department are always ready to help – just write an email to semsupport@spamfighter.com

When emails are redirected to another email address directly from Exchange, they are sent to your other email address before they are stored in your Exchange, and thus SPAMfighter does not have the opportunity to filter them.

Please remove the forwarding from Exchange and use instead this method:1) Open the SEM Administration Module on the server and go to “Mailboxes” -> “Mailboxes”
2) Locate the mailbox in cause
3) Click the small configuration icon to the right of the mailbox
4) Choose “POP3” as primary mail protocol
5) Click “Save changes” follow by “Close”

In Outlook, click “Tools” -> “Rules and Alerts” -> “New rule” -> “Start from blank rule” -> “Check messages when they arrive”.Create a new blank rule with the following properties: * Sent to people or distribution list (select your email address)
 * Forward it to people… (add your second email address)
 * Except if the subject contains specific words (enter these characters: ** SPAM **)
 * Stop processing more rulesCreate another blank rule with the following properties: * Check messages when they arrive
 * With specific words in the subject (add the characters: ** SPAM **)
 * Move it to the specified folder (Choose SPAMfighter)
 * Stop processing more rulesIn step two above, please make sure that you select “With specific words in the SUBJECT”, not body. When you select “stop processing more rules”, the rule will run server-side and will be executed when an email is received, even if Outlook is not running. If the rule is marked as “client-side” in the Rules list, then please edit your rule and uncheck the option “on this machine only”. These rules need to run server-side to be effective.

No, certainly not!
The worst case scenario is that the installation fails (not likely!) and SEM lets spam through to the users. In other words, the users receive the spam they are used to receiving. On top of that, SEM is very easy to uninstall completely, but our guess is that you wont want to after trying it out.
Bottom line, you can safely install the free trial and test it as much as you want without worrying about down time or other complications.

If an email is determined to be spam, SEM moves the message to a folder named SPAMfighter in the users mailbox. If the folder does not exist, it will be recreated automatically. The move process is transactional and will rollback if it fails.

The administrator can change the anti-spam policy to delete spam mails, redirect them to a dedicated mailbox, or use a Quarantine that will keep the spam on the server for a set number of days.

SEM sends installation details at registration, login information when running and email compiled hash values when testing e-mails. SEM never sends information sensitive to the network. Also all information sent and received is validated to avoid tampering.

Yes, using the administration interface, you can easily disable spam filtering on a single mailbox.

If the SEM installation fails, there will have been no interaction with the Exchange Server hence it has no impact on your configuration.

Yes it can. SEM works with most common Antivirus software. Since SEM is integrated in the Exchange Server, it does not impact on the functionality of any Antivirus software.SEM also integrates fully with VIRUSfighter for Exchange – an addon product for SEM.

Since SEM utilizes the Exchange server interface, emails are not deleted but only moved. If SEM should unexpectedly fail during the analysis, processing or redirection of a mail item, the transaction will be rolled back and the system remain intact.

SPAMfighter is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and SEM is certified by VeriTest® for “Windows 2003”, “SQL Server 2005”, “Web services” and “.net connected” certified.

SEM supports Microsoft Exchange Server 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

SPAMfighter Exchange Server Module seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Exchange Server which makes the solution very fast.

As an email arrives and the Exchange Server routes it to its addressees, SEM makes a unique signature for each message and sends it to the SPAMfighter Server for evaluation. If the SPAMfighter Server determines that a message is spam, it notifies SEM and the spam mail is moved to the users’ spam folder.

SPAMfighter Exchange Server Module also offers reporting, so administrators can review statistics on how many messages SEM has filtered, how many users are enabled and more.

In addition, SEM is simple to use for end users as spam is automatically moved to the spam folder. While SEM simplifies administration and keeps software and configuration off the employee’s desktop, it also provides individual control for end users if the administrators decide they want this.
