The GFI MailEssentials SpamTag plugin is an add-on for Microsoft Outlook that installs a toolbar on end users' machines, giving some control to users for managing spam emails. The plugin also synchronizes Microsoft Outlook Junk settings with GFI MailEssentials.
The Microsoft Outlook Junk functionality enables users to manage spam emails at the client side, whereas the SpamTag plugin allows users to manage their spam emails at the server level.
Before using SpamTag, install WCF HTTP Activation on the GFI MailEssentials server. To do this, go to Server Manager > Features > Add Feature > .NET Framework > WCF Activation > HTTP Activation.
The GFI MailEssentials administrator can choose which of the following features and functions to enable:
- Train the Bayesian Analysis filter
- Add senders and/or domains to Personal Blocklist or Personal Whitelist
- Automatically synchronize allowed and blocked senders in Microsoft Outlook with the GFI MailEssentials Personal Whitelist and Personal Blocklist, respectively.
- Automatically add users' contacts to the Personal Whitelist.
Note: Users assigned to GFI MailEssentials are also allowed to add senders/domains to the GFI MailEssentials Email Global Blocklist & Global Whitelist. Refer to the Using Access Control article for more information.
