    Default Spam - Mark them, don'f File to Junk ?

    Is it possible to keep the spam filtering on and not have it move the spam into the "Junk" folder?

    -or-
    Is it possible to configure remote POP3 access to download both the inbox and the Junk folder?

    I'm running this version:
    Code:
    $ zmcontrol -v
    Release 4.5.5_GA_838.RHEL4_20070518082442 CentOS4 FOSS edition
    Thanks.

    Default user IMAP

    i guess you trying to get your JUNK messages to your email client on remote machine.

    Use IMAP insated of POP and you can subscribe all FOLDERS from server on your remote Email Client.

    Interesting. Perhaps it will work. 3 Questions though:

    (1) Doesn't IMAP leave a copy of the email on the server?

    (2) I setup to use IMAP and then on my local pc deleted the spam. It is still there and shows a hash through it (denoting its deleted) but it remains. How would one actually delete it?

    (3) Is it possible to alter the settings to have it filter(mark SPAM or delete) and leave it for the Inbox?

    My preference is to remain with POP3, but receive all email via the inbox - is this possible while keeping the SPAM filtering on?

    1. Yes, that's really where it should stay.

    2. They go when you purge or 'expunge' your client.

    3. Have a look at this thread (third post from marcmac).

    Create a server side filter to move messages marked as Junk back into the Inbox, works great with POP3

    I have tried to locate help on creating filters. This is what I found and did:

    Code:
    (1)  # su - zimbra
    (2)  $ zmprov gcf zimbraSpamHeader
      zimbraSpamHeader: X-Spam-Flag
    (3) $ zmprov gcf zimbraSpamHeaderValue
      zimbraSpamHeaderValue: YES
    (4)  $ zmprov mcf zimbraSpamHeader X-SPAM-TAGGED
    (5)  $ zmprov gcf zimbraSpamHeader
      zimbraSpamHeader: X-SPAM-TAGGED
    For reference:
    1. First you have to run this as the user zimbra
    2. check to see what the configuration setting is for the variable spam-header (gcf = get configuration)
    Note: This is what value gets set into the header of the mail message if it is detected to be spam.
    3. This setting shows that spam filtering is ON
    4. This changed the setting in the mail header that will be set when the spam filtering detects spam to tag (and not delete)
    5. This verified the setting took

    Of course I restarted (stop and start - 2 actions) the tool after this so it would take effect.

    Apparently there is some filter - maybe its configurable, maybe its built in and can not be changed - but there is a filter that runs after the email is processed for spam detection - this filter looks for the original setting in the mail header - and if it exists it will move the mail into the junk folder.

    My change - band-aid as it is - does work to keep all mail in the inbox - so pop3 users will be happy to get all their email. otherwise most pop3 users will just let the spam sit in the junk folder on the server until it fills up their quota space.

    I would have rather turned off the filter and leave the mail header update as it was, but alas I was not able to determine this...

    Why did you not follow the instructions I gave earlier, it works for what you want (unless I've missed something).
