Hi,

I have add some filters in the DOMAIN and FROM Blacklists.

But some mails continue to pass trough the filters. I think it is because the "envloppe external" FROM and the internals (FROM and REPLY-to) are different. I suppose spamfilter doen't test the internal headers!

What is SpamFilter testing???

Must I add the "DOMAINS" and "FROM" to the KEYWORDS Blacklist?

Thanks

Gaby

Gaby,

Neither TO nor FROM are based on the email headers. They work off the MAIL FROM and RCPT TO parameters that are given in the smtp conversation between the servers.
 
I hope this helps!

Thank you!!!

that is Iunderstand after i see that some filters didn't work!

But we had some mails with a fixed internet "FROM" (internal Header) and a changing external "FROM" (SMTP).
