Written by: on 24 March 2015 01:42 PM 24 March 2015 01:42 PM

This article explains the basic functionality of the SPAM Experts control panel. It is for users who have purchased incoming SPAM filtering. For help on ordering SPAM filtering please click here.

To access the SPAM Experts Login please go to https://one.spamexperts.controlmyvps.com.au

 

QUARANTINE (POSSIBLE SPAM)

This will show all messages the filter has quarantined. To view, click on the email's subject. To release click the email symbol on the right of the line. Released emails will appear in your mailbox within a few minutes.

Click on Spam Quarantine link

Release spam by clicking on email symbol

LOG SEARCH

Here you can enter a date range and hit search (the other fields can be left empty). This will show you how emails were handled in the past, including any emails temporarily rejected (waiting for redelivery) and permanently rejected. Permanently rejected emails cannot be viewed or released.

Click on Log Search link

WHITELIST

If an email has been rejected, you can set up a "white list" either for the email address or for an entire domain under "Sender whitelist". This will ensure that future emails will get through. For any emails already rejected, please ask the sender to resend.

Click on Sender Whitelist link

EMAIL CLASSIFICATION

In the "Log Search" you will see a column entitled "Classification". The most common are:

ACCEPTED
The email has passed the spam filter and has been delivered to the recipient's inbox.
TEMPORARILY REJECTED
The email was temporarily rejected. Legitimate mail servers that observe the RFC standards will re-deliver the message. 
greylisted - message greylisted 
High DNSBL score - IP is listed on blacklists. For more information on DNSBL (and to check if an IP is blacklisted), please see www.dnsbl.info.
REJECTED
The email has been permanently rejected and can be found in the spam quarantine. 
Considered spam - identified as spam by filter rules. 
Content looked like spam - Failed content check. 
Sender's domain is missing DNS records - Faulty DNS entries

White and Black Listing

SENDER WHITELIST AND BLACKLIST

Sender Whitelist Screenshot

A white list is a list of emails which are never marked as spam. It's ideal to guarantee important emails to get through without delay or to resolve a situation where a sender you trust gets marked as spam occasionally. You can also whitelist entire domains.

On the reverse, a black list is a list of emails which are always treated as spam. If you receive emails from a sender which are not marked as spam, but you don't wish to receive these, you can enter the email address on the black list. You can also blacklist entire domains.

RECIPIENT WHITELIST AND BLACKLIST

The recipient settings apply to the receiving, ie your email address. With these setting, you can permanently allow all or no emails through to your address(es).

If you whitelist one of your email addresses, all emails will go through to this address. This basically disables the spam filter for a specific email address.

In reverse, if you blacklist a recipient email address, all email to this address will be treated as spam and no email will go through on this address. This setting is probably rare, but may be useful if you have an email which attracts spam and is not used for any legitimate mail correspondence.
