This test assumes that you use the default installation settings for spam message handling.
See Post-installation tasks.
To test spam filtering
Create a POP3 account on your Mail Delivery Agent (MDA).
For the SMTP server setting on this account, specify the IP address of an enabled Scanner.
Compose an email message that is addressed to an account on the computer on which the Scanner runs.
Give the message a subject that is easy to find, such as Test Spam Message.
To classify the message as spam, include the following URL on a line by itself in the message body:
Send the message.
Check the email account to which you sent the message.
You should find a message with the same subject prefixed by the word [Spam].
Send a message that is not spam to the same address.
After several minutes have passed, in the Control Center, click Status > Dashboard.
The Spam counter on the Dashboard page increases by one if spam filtering works.
