Mcafee MSME 8.5 antispam

Jump to solution

Dear Tech Community,

I have MSME 8.5 configured, I trying to understand the GFI Message Reputation setting which is set by default to 80. In product documentation it dose not state if high value is more sensitive or lower value and what are the best practices, we are receiving false positives.

If I increase the value will it make the SPAM detection less sensitive? or is it better to pass the score to antispam agent?

I need to find a sweet spot for this setting.

Hi,

Once you have enabled the GTI message reputation, Be default, Any message with a message reputation score of less than 80 will be considered as legitimate as well as 80 and above will consider as suspicious and pass the score anti-spam engine. Anti-spam engines consider this value for calculating cumulative value and action will take based on cumulative value.

You can not increase the value if you would like to pass this score to an anti-spam engine.

If you would like to drop the email without passing the score to AS module then you can increase the value by changing the setting to "Drop and quarantine".
