    Default Spam filter, server wide or per domain?

    I have my Zimbra server set up with all my users and a daily Imapsync currently, but it is not in production yet and is on another IP. Currently it is functioning with a test subdomain and a few test accounts. If I were to forward a massive amount of spam from my current production mail server to an account on the test domain, could I used that to train up the spam filters for both domains?

    EDIT: Oops, posted in wrong forum, this should probably in Administrators.

    The answer to that would be yes, you could do that. I wouldn't have thought it necessary as the spam filters are pretty good to start with. Currently the spam filters are server wide, there's no individual or domain option although there are a frew RFEs in bugzilla for that feature.

    I have it at the defualt 75/33 atm and wanted to tune it a bit before launching. Also feeding it some manual spam should help as well.

    It certainly wouldn't do any harm but I've never found it necessary, YMMV. You might also want to consider reducing the tag/kill percentages to 25/66.
