Content filtering Rules

If I may be so bold...

One thing that will make eFa insanely powerful in terms of stopping spam will be the ability to add/modify content filters, per domain or globally.
Alot of us have abandoned Xeams and their greedy creators and found solace in Efa as an alternative.

In terms of the feature:

Match on;
1. Subject
2. Body
3. Sender
4. Recipient
5. Attachment (filename)
6. Headers (all)

e.g.

For [specific domain|all domains] if
[Subject|Body|Sender|Recipient|Attachment|Headers]
[contains|startswith|endswith]
"ABC" then
==> assign a specific score

Then leave the rest up to Mailscanner to process...

You can do that already by adding your own rules to spamassassin. You can find many examples in the forums.

I hear you, we often go in to tweak KAM itself.

I guess I'm referring to having the ability to manage these custom rules via EFA-Configure or MailWatch itself, the latter being preferred.
I'd rather not have anybody tinkering directly in config and rule files(unmanaged approach), always the risk of messing things up...

So you're looking for a UI that will allow you to add these kinds of rules.

Considering that no one has built this before, I doubt anyone is going to do it anytime soon unless someone steps up to the plate.

I see it as less of an efa feature and more of a spamassassin/mailwatch feature so the place I would ask for it is in the mailwatch project.
