Auto-learn & White Listing
This dialog box is accessed from the Mailtraq Console | Options | Bayesian Anti-spam
It enables the Administrator to ensure that messages from genuine correspondants are not incorrectly classified as spam.
The options on this tab allow the system to self-train based on the messages either sent to or received from this mailbox.
Mail with a return-path matching this mailbox will be learnt as non-spam should be checked if the mailbox represents the address of a local user who sends regular e-mail messages. Presumably the mail that the user sends out will be non-spam, and learning the messages as such provides another method for training the database without user intervention. Note: messages that can already be identified as non-spam will not be learnt (to keep the database optimised).
White-list all message recipients should be checked if you wish to have the recipients of all mail sent from this mailbox (i.e. messages with a return-path matching this mailbox) white listed. Normally this option would be selected in conjunction with the above option. The effective result is that if the owner e-mails someone, returning mail from them will not be analyzed.
This tab contains a manual list of addresses from which mail should not be analyzed. This list can be edited and may include wildcard characters (see Wildcards for more information).
Each address (or wildcard specification) should be on a separate line.
Editing Automatic White List
Do not confuse the White List-tab with the automatic white list included within the database. That Auto-Learn list can be edited by clicking on the blue More link on the (System Profile-tab), and is shared by all users of the database file.
