This article describes how anti-spam keywords are handled in GFI MailEssentials.
- GFI MailEssentials does not update the keyword list.
- A basic keyword list, which allows you to filter spam until the Bayesian filter has been trained from your email pattern, is included in the initial installation.
- Bayesian filtering technology is much more effective than keyword checking, as it detects spam based on message content.
- Rather than just checking for keywords, the Bayesian filter takes the whole message into consideration, as well as the content of legitimate emails that you send.
For more information on the Bayesian filter, refer to the article Why is Bayesian filtering the best way to catch spam?
