Spam Preferences, Safe Lists, and Black List In Microsoft Exchange


Rackspace gives our users the flexibility to set their own Spam preferences to their liking. This includes editing and managing domain-wide spam settings, Safe list, Black List and the ability to override the spam filtering for the entire domain. Let's take a look at how to manage this: 

Manage Domain Spam Settings

1. To manage your domain spam settings select Set Preferences under Spam Filtering in the Rackspace Email Box.

Note: If you have multiple domains you may be prompted to select the domain you intend to make changes to first.

2. Next you'll select either Entire domain or Individual Microsoft Exchange Mailbox.

Note: If you selected Individual Rackspace Email Mailbox, select the mailbox you intend to make changes to.

3. In the Settings section select whether you'd like to turn the spam filtering on or off. You may also select the Exclusive button to receive email only from senders on your domain’s safelist if you desire.

4. Next, select the preferred settings for your domain. Below is an overview of each of the options:

Note: Quarantine does not apply to Microsoft Exchangw 2010 users. Only Microsoft Exchange 2007 users have access to the Quarantine option.

5. In the Override Options section indicate whether to apply these settings only to users who have not already set their spam preferences or to override spam preferences for all users. When you're finished select the Save button.
