Tim,

Re your post of 12/23/03 on Server Side filtering.

We do what I think you are asking. But we use (gasp!) ASSP
(assp.sourceforge.com) 

Internet --> Firewall --> ASSP --> Exchange 2000 --> Clients

On the client side, we use a rule to move all the [SPAM] email to a
separate folder.

So I could assist on ASSP, but perhaps you'd prefer to use SpamBayes
(You know about the wonderful SpamBayes Outlook AddIn I assume. It works
really well we feel.)

John

I'm an administrator at a large company that uses an exchange server.  I
would like a spam filtering solution that is transparent to the user.
Has
any of your group had experience setting up a mail relay that would
filter
mail and then relay it to another email server?  The client side
solution
works well but deployment, training, administration etc. would be a
pain.
Here's my idea of a idea of a perfect world.


                                                   
       Internet-----> Spamfilter / Relay ------>Firewall ----->Exchange
Server ----->Client ------
                                        ^
V                         
                                        I
|                           
                                        |
Junk Email    
                                        I
V                                                                   I

Simply put I would like to set up a mail relay that would use spambayes
and
forward to my Exchange server.  Once the client receives the email they
could send email to a junk file that would be polled by the Spamfilter /
Relay for training spambayes.  All mail on the Spam Filter deemed junk
would
be reviewed by an administrator prior to deleting.  

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Tim

Does  anyone on this list know anything about the iMail spam filter?    
I hear it's a
Baysian filter,  and if it is,  I need to know some things about it.

One thing is that as I process mail,  it has a "Junk" icon which I 
believe
"teaches" it which is spam and ham.

My Spam or Junk mailbox is getting HUGE and I wonder what the effects 
are
if I delete some of the older junk.     Will messing with the Junk 
mailbox mess up
the corpus?     Or is the corpus kept in some other place.

It's ability to filter spam is significantly reduced now,   and I think 
it was all
because I moved some of the spam out of the junk mailbox.

Could this be one of actions I have caused,  or has spam mail really 
all of
a sudden figured out how to get around the filter?

What is the recommended way to clean up my corpus (assuming i can even
find it).

John

I suspect that you're more likely to have luck looking around Apple's
discussion lists and support, than here.
