    Hi there,
    I cant find anywhere in the configuration where you can see or alter the blocklists for the anti-spam engine. Only where you can manually enter IP addresses. The product blurb states:
    New antispam protection integrates technologies such as registered black list (RBL), DNS-based black list (DNSBL), fingerprinting, reputation checking, content analysis, Bayesian filtering, rules, manual whitelisting/blacklisting to ensure maximum detection of email threats.
    Can we alter all/any of these or are they fixed?
    Have read the manual but it hasnt got anything in it either.
    Regards
    Colin

    Anybody have any more information on this? Do I block and approve users and domains in this folder using the ApprovedSenders and BlockedSenders files? Nothing via the GUI? Thanks

    go to the folder where the spamcather.conf is located probably

    c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\eset\eset mail security\mailserver

    in this folder you wil find an approvedsender file and a blockedsender file.
    Just add the users you want to block or not to this file and after this
    ( i know it's strange o_O )
    disable the mailserver anti-spam and re-enable it

    then it should be active and working

    It does seem strange as I would expect something in the GUI. Thanks for the confirmation on this.
