Hi folks,

this is my problem: i dont use the spam filter of Kerio Mailserver. We allreday use a big externel mail server farm, which does all the filtering for us. So mail that are classified as spam are allready marked with [SPAM] in the subject, when reaching my server.

The problem now is, how not to autoreply to spam. In fact many senders of spam use faked (which means not existing) email adresses. So when somebody uses the our of office reply the server tries to reply, failes and reports this to the user who activated the autoresponder.
So is it possible to modify the autoreplay that way, that there s no replay sent to an email the contains [SPAM] in its subject?

Thanks for help
MacSEK

How about a rule that moves the messages with [SPAM] in the subject to the Junk folder?

Good point, but the problem is, that the outoreply rule of the system is executed first. That means the reply is created bevor the spam rule is able to move it to the junk folder.

Well, you could not use that default rules and define own rule for spams and autoreply (out-of-office).

The best solution is to set your server farm to add X-Spam-Flag: YES header to spam messages. This way the default mail filter in KMS will work properly.

Hi MacSEK,
I used to have that problem but since I trained up the bayserian filter in Kerio this has stop 99% of spam getting through in the 1st place thus users don't get the failed autorelies.

Mise le meas,
Fiachra.

The header must have name X-Spam-Flag and the value has to be "Yes" or "YES".

Don't use the custom rules. Create two rules of your own as follows:

You can create two Mail Filter rules to accomplish this. These rules must be the top two rules of all the mail filter rules.

Rule 1:
Select Conditions for your rule:

Where the subject contains words (you would enter [SPAM])

Select actions for your rule:

Stop processing more rules

Rule 2:
Select Conditions for your rule:

For all messages

Select actions for your rule:

Send autoreply.(Enter your out of office message)

The first rule will let messages marked as [SPAM] into your Inbox and not reply to them. The second rule will reply to all other mail.
