Administration Guide

Managing tagged spam

Instead of detaining an email in the system or personal quarantine, the administrator can configure the FortiMail unit to tag the subject line or header of an email that is detected as spam. For details, see Configuring antispam action profiles.

Once spam is tagged, the administrator notifies email users of the text that comprises the tag. Email users can then set up a rule-based folder in their email clients to automatically collect the spam based on tags.

For example, if spam subject lines are tagged with “SPAM”, email users can make a spam folder in their email client, then make filter rules in their email clients to redirect all email with this tag from their inbox into the spam folder.

Methods to create mailbox folders and filter rules vary by email client. For instructions, see your email client’s documentation.
