Hi,

Seems there is not a lot of activity on these forums these days. Still the product is very active.
I have need for 2 things actually and I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

1. I know, it's not done but our company requires it. It's the spam notifications. I would like to send an email to our recipients telling them there is spam in the quarantine folders. Would someone be so kind to tell me how to achieve that? Maybe a existing script ;-)

2. We have an issue with users who check 2 quarantine folders in their outlook client. What happens is that they get the wrong webpage in outlook. For example they check their personal folders like john smith@ something.com and in another folder they need to check info@somehting.com. What happens is that the folders get mixed up. I mean, info is showing the quarantine of John smith and the other way around. I understood that this could be an cache issue. How to get around this?

Any advice would be great

Geert

This forum seems to be death. Nice one after paying a license.

We apologize - there's been an issue with the last forum upgrade which caused emails notifications to the forum administrators to be dropped. We completely missed this post.

This request has been in our wish list for a while, and we'll likely work on it on the next release of SpamFilter. Next week right after the holidays we'll be releasing officially the new version of SpamFilter v4.5.0.62, after which work will start for the new features.

As it deals with this exact issue. Do ensure to follow the modifications until the very last post as they deal with some unwanted side-effects.

Is is possible to implement this at this moment via modifications? I know it has been done before.

As all the spam emails are stored in SpamFilter's database, it's fairly straightforward to write an external script that sends a daily digest to all users containing the list of blocked emails.

The message headers - (to/from/subject/date etc) are stored in the table tblQuarantine. The text content for the emails is stored in the table tblMsgs. A script (or a stored procedure in the database) would have to be written to go thru all the records in the tblQuarantine, grouped by "TO:" email addresses, and filtered for just the previous day.

We've seen some admins mentioning scripts they've developed in the forum, but I do not think anyone published their source code. You are of course free to use the forum to contact anyone in regards to this while we develop our own solution to this.
