Using the Spam Plug-in

Once installed, you can use the new red icon to classify a message as spam and the green icon to classify the email as not spam. The options are used to teach the Spam Firewall university wide.

Classify as Not Spam

Classifies the selected message as not spam.

Note: Some bulk commercial mail may be considered useful by some users and spam by others. For this reason, classifying such messages may not be very effective because users may counteract each others’ classification. Instead of classifying bulk commercial mail, it may be more effective to add it to your whitelist (if you wish to receive such messages) or blacklist (if you prefer not to receive them).

Classify as Spam Classifies the selected message as spam.
