MEG 7.6 "Spam Terms"

I'm in the process of building our MEG 7.6 appliance to replace our v6.7.2 appliance.  Technical support converted our custom dictionaries and I successfully imported those into the new environment.  My intuition tells me to setup these dictionaries  in complaince (just like in the old system) at the following location:

Email > Email Policies (SMTP) > Compliance (Column) > Compliance

However, I noticed that there is also a place in the spam configuration where you can use dictionaries for the definition of "spam terms"...

Email > Email Policies (SMTP) > Spam (Column) > Spam > Spam: Score >= 10.0: Drop the data > Spam Terms (Tab)

What's the difference and has documentation for v7.6 been released yet?  Thanks!

Re: MEG 7.6 "Spam Terms"

Hi runcmd,

It depends on what you want to do with the dictionary.  If you want to perform a block action, use it in compliance.  if you want to add to the spam score when the dictionary is triggered, use it in spam terms.  Hope this helps.
