How can I adjust my spam filter score?

By default, konsoleH’s Spam Filter has a threshold value of ‘5’. Emails that score less than ‘5’ are delivered to your inbox while emails that score higher than ‘5’ are sent directly to the Spam Bucket.

It is possible to adjust the threshold value using the Spam Filter tool. However, it is important to note that the higher you place the threshold, the more Spam will pass through to your inbox. The lower you place the threshold, the less Spam will pass through to our threshold.

Adjust your domain’s spam filter score via konsoleH:

1.    Browse to konsoleH (https://secure.konsoleh.co.za/)
2.    Login with your email addressr and Management password
3.    Select or search for a domain name in the ‘Hosting Service’ tab
4.    Select ‘Mail’ from the left-hand menu
5.    Select the ‘Spam Filter’ menu option
6.    Click ‘Edit Threshold’
7.    Select the ‘New Score’ from the drop-down list
8.    Click ‘Save’

Warning: Should you decide to place the threshold at a value of ‘1’, ‘2’ or ‘3’, be aware that this is an aggressive Spam score and will result in an INCREASED amount of ‘False Positives’.

We recommend that the threshold value remains at ‘5’ and that you regularly check the Spam Bucket to pick up on any ‘False Positives’. Should you encounter ‘False Positives’ and would like to continue to receive email from this particular address, we recommend that you use the Mail Filter tool and ‘white list’ the said email address.
