    The spam filter in v4.41 Win32

    I unchecked the spam filtering because it kept putting messages that were not spam into the spam folder. I don't get much spam anyway that gets through the filters at postini.com. Even after I moved them and added them to the allowed list it continues to keep filtering the mail box and I'm at a lost as to making it stop. I even deleted the folders and the program re-made them. Any suggestions?

    you´re talking about spamhalter ?

    most important with spamhalter is, that you train your database with "good" mails and with spam, so that the engine has a basis to classify the incoming mails.

    Yes. The box for enabling it is "un-checked" and it's still working as if it was checked.

    Quite strange.... 

    Are you sure it's spamfilter and not Content Control that is moving your messages?

    Re: The spam filter in v4.41 Win32

    ... or perhaps a filter-rule ?

    i don´t use spamhalter with pegasus, because i use it with mercury, but ... have you viewed the header of the mail ? do they have any sign, that spamhalter has processed them ? (in mercury there are one or more header-lines added - depending on the configuration)

    Re: The spam filter in v4.41 Win32

    I've never used content control. I checked the filtering rules and there are none. Think I should just re-install v4.41 and see if that cures the problem? Ini file to look at?

    No, reinstalling the program never solves a data problem as it doesn't even touch the data. Check the content of WI_sph.ini, the enabled line must have a zero. You can open that file in notepad. You can copy paste the content if you like.

    Re: The spam filter in v4.41 Win32

    I searched for the WI_sph.ini file and had 4 of them. Each one for a different mail box. 3 of them were set to 0 and the 4th one to 1. That 4th one was not the mail box in question but, after setting it to 0 the problem seems to have corrected itself in the mail box that was having the problem. Thank you for all your help.
