Spam tagging option

Email Options: "Marking"

Usually, when a spam level of 6.0 is reached or exceeded, the subject of the email is supplemented by a prefix [SPAM?]. The reason for this procedure is that some mail clients limit the use of other lines of the mail header for filter rules (e.g. Outlook Express).

This option allows you to deselect the spam marker (subject or subject only). As with blocking, this is a non-strict option that only takes effect under certain circumstances. I.e. only if all recipients of a message have deactivated this option (i.e. suppress the marking), is the addition of [SPAM?]

In order to recognize a marked spam mail, you must rely on the mail header lines added in the course of marking, e.g:

X-Spam-Status: MEDIUM ; 79
X-Spam-Level: *******+++++++++
X-Spam-TU-Processing-Host: mri1
X-Spam-Flag: YES
X-Spam-Report: 7.9/6.0
