Default Spam, the best way?

Hello,
I still receive a lot of spam that has subject ***SPAM*** or ***POSSIBLE SPAM*** (i added this to the Permissive policy).

For the whole domain (all mail boxes) I have Permissive as poilcy but still a lot of SPAM gets in the mailboxes. I want that all ***SPAM*** and ***POSSIBLE SPAM*** (because I see that everyting is spam so far) get's deleted before it get's in the mailboxes.

What is the best way to do this?

Rudolf.

Permissive is as the name says permissive by default. To get a more strict filtering, edit the scores of the permissive policy and set the tag2 level e.g. to 4. and the kill level to something between 5 and 10.

Then change the scores as I suggested above.

OK did that. Now lets wait a few days :-)

But do higher values not mean filer out more spam? Because now I lowered the values like you mentioned?

Higher values mean to filter out less spam.
