As I mentioned in a previous post, you can do some creative things with MDaemon’s content filter. Recently, one of our users had asked in our community forums if there was a way to send a notification message to a designated user or email address whenever a new account is created in MDaemon. I’ll walk you through the steps to achieve this in this tutorial video.
WorldClient, MDaemon’s webmail client, features icons that users can click on to feed examples of spam or non-spam to MDaemon’s Bayesian learning feature.
MDaemon’s Bayesian Learning feature allows you to feed samples of spam and non-spam to designated folders. These samples are used to train the spam filter to recognize spam and non-spam messages. The more samples you feed these folders, the more accurate your spam filter can be over time. This feature is especially useful if you work in an industry that uses medical or financial terms. If you work for a bank, messages containing pharmaceutical terminology can be handled with greater scrutiny, while messages of a financial nature can be treated with less suspicion. The same is true if you work for a medical facility. Your daily email correspondence may contain messages with names of medications or other pharmacy related terms, while they may not contain many words of a financial nature. So if you’re a bank & you receive a great deal of spam with the names of medications in them, you can feed those messages to your Bayesian Learning folder so that MDaemon can learn from them based on your specific business.
Using WorldClient, MDaemon’s webmail client, users can feed examples of spam and non-spam to MDaemon’s Bayesian Learning system using the Thumbs Up & Thumbs Down icons in the upper toolbar. But what if these icons are missing for a particular user, or for all users? Or, what if you as the administrator do not want users to have access to the Bayesian learning folders due to messages being improperly fed to the wrong folders? In this situation, you could create two more folders for spam and non-spam messages, then grant your users access those folders instead of to the main Bayesian learning folders. This means, though, that the thumbs up & thumbs down icons will not appear in WorldClient, but users would still be able to access the new public folders you created (if you granted them access via Public Folder Manager) for placement of samples of spam or non-spam.
I’ve put together the following tutorial video, which shows how to enable the Thumbs up & Thumbs down icons in WorldClient.
