    Default Outbound required for training?

    Hello,

    I cant seem to find this info in any other thread or the wiki.. so hopefully someone can help!

    I have untangle in bridge mode with spam blocker which sits in front of a mail server that is accepting incoming emails, however outbound emails are sent from a different box which is not behind untangle.

    Do i need to feed outbound email through untangle to help build some sort of internal whitelist?

    I ask because we are getting quite a few false positives caught in qurantine, im wondering if i feed outbound email through untangle will the recipients address be whitelisted so when they reply back it does not get quarantined? THX!

    It might help possibly train the bayesian just a tad, but it is not necessary.

    I would go back to the default settings in spam blocker if you have changed settings.

    Hey, thanks for responding!

    I am using the defaults for spam block settings, of 3 quarantined messages, two are false positive. There are lots of spam coming through also but its my understaning that in the begining a lot will come through until it has some history for training.

    Do you know for sure that outbound email recipients will be trained as HAM? or is that a mystery? If its one of those mysteries then i dont think i will bother to re-route outbound mail through untangle just yet.

    Thanks for your insights!

    To answer my question:

    NO, when you send outbound, untangle does not auto whitelist the recipients as i was hoping, when they reply, still quarantined.

    "might possible... just a tad" does not justify re-routing my outbound through untangle. Hopefully in the upcoming weeks things will even out!

    dmorris, thanks anyway!

    Well, yeah, if its a new install it takes a while to train.
    If its seen a few thousand messages are you're getting false positives with the defaults I suspect something is wrong...

    In general extremely low scoring messages are used to train as ham, but it doesn't have anything to do with direction and inbound/outbound.
