Using the Sendmail Reject List and Spam Filtering service

The control panel offers two spam filter options - the Sendmail Reject List and Spam Filtering service - that vary in their approach and flexibility in managing spam.

While the Sendmail Reject List enables effortless global control on relay of spam email messages to site users, the Spam Filtering service allows for discretionary management of spam by the users themselves.

Sendmail Reject List

Email sources that you identify as illegitimate can be blocked from being delivered to any user of the site.

While the Sendmail Reject List only allows rejection of spam email messages, the Spam Filtering service allows discretionary management of spam.

Disadvantages

Filtering at the user level introduces security risks posed by email viruses.
