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!
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.
