After implementation, if you still receive mail that you consider
spam that is not labeled as spam or quarantined, you can teach
Spam Firewall to consider it spam. This option is only available
through Exchange Outlook client, not web mail. To use it, you must
load the outlook plug-in listed at the bottom of the logon page.
1. When “Get Mail Client Plugins Here”
is clicked on, the download window appears. Click on “Download
2. When the File Download window appears click on “Open”.
3. When asked if you want to continue click on “yes”.
4. Follow the instructions by clicking “Next”
until the installation is complete.
5. When finished, the plug-in will show up in the Microsoft client
in the upper right hand corner as shown below.
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).
