Have you configured SpamAssassin for your Hampshire e-mail? Read this tip to learn what it is and how to configure this first line of defense against spam.
SpamAssassin is a filter that we use on all of our mail servers. It looks at each message received and gives it a spam score; the lower the score, the more likely the message is spam. If you haven't yet configured your settings, visit the links below to learn how to set up SpamAssassin for your account. Your mail will not be filtered unless you activate SpamAssassin for your account!
If you've configured SpamAssassin but are still receiving large quantities of spam, check your settings to see if a more aggressive setting is appropriate for you. If you are currently using the mark as Subject: >>Spam<< option, you may want to consider changing it to delete spam instead.
