reject at smtp time

Post by keat63 »

Is it possible to have MSFE reject emails at smtp time if they are classed as a high scoring spam ?

I can only see, deliver, delete or forward.

If not, is this something worthy of consideration for a future release ?

That is not possible, as Mailscanner does not have access to the mail at smtp time and will not have given it a spam score at that point. Exim receives the mail, passes it to MailScanner, and then after scanning MailScanner passes it back to another exim process for delivery unless it is configured to delete the mail based on the score.
