Purpose

This application moves into a predefined folder in the user's mailbox any message that carries an SMTP header or subject line marking it as spam, as added by such tools as SpamAssasin or GFI Mail Essentials. These marked messages can be forwarded to another e-mail address or deleted instead of moved. Any amount of rules can be configured. SpamMover can create a folder named Spam (or whatever you prefer) in each Exchange mailbox automatically.
The application is an Exchange store event sink.

If you're looking for more powerful tool, have a look at MAPILAB Rules product.

Benefits

Installation

On your Exchange Server 2007 computer:
1. Create a new mailbox-enabled user account. Mailbox alias must be SMTEST.
You should create this account for test purposes only, so you can delete it after you satisfy yourself with the fact that the application is actually works.

2. Create or select another mailbox-enabled user account (let's name it "SMAdmin") that is a member of the Domain Admins and Domain Users security groups. That account must have full permissions on the all mailbox stores. Open Exchange Management Shell and execute
    Get-MailboxDatabase | add-adpermission -user SMAdmin -accessRights GenericAll

3. Log on as SMAdmin to your Exchange 2007 Server computer.

4. Create C:\Program Files\SpamMover2007\ directory. Download SpamMover2007-Demo.zip archive file to this directory and extract all files.

5. Run C:\Program Files\SpamMover\SpamMover2007Setup.exe. Click Install button in COM+ object frame. Make sure the following rules exist in the Rules list:

Testing   (We are testing the rules shown on picture above)

Filtering based on Subject field
       1. Send a message with subject field "[Spam] SMtest" to SMTEST.
2. Using Outlook, open SMTEST mailbox. Make sure Spam folder has been created on the same level as the other main folders like Inbox, Outbox etc. You will see that the message you just sent is placed in the Spam folder.

3. Send a message that DOES NOT contain "[SPAM]" in the subject field to SMTEST.
4. Make sure the message you just sent is placed in the Inbox folder of SMTEST mailbox.
5. When finished, you can delete SMTEST account.
Filtering based on X-header
       1. Send a message that contains "X-Spam-Flag: YES" header to SMTEST.
2. Using Outlook, open SMTEST mailbox. Make sure Spam folder has been created on the same level as the other main folders like Inbox, Outbox etc. You will see that the message you just sent is placed in the Spam folder.

3. Send a message that DOES NOT contain "X-Spam-Flag: YES" header to SMTEST.
4. Make sure the message you just sent is placed in the Inbox folder of SMTEST mailbox.

We have tested SpamMover 2007 with Outlook 2003/2007 and Exchange 2007 SP1 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition SP2. It can work on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 also.

Comparison Expressions

Let's suppose that your spam software (Symantec Mail Security, for example) adds an X-Header if the SCL (Spam Confidence Level) value of a message is greater than 3 (or whatever you set the value at). The X-Header that is added is this:
   X-SMSMSE-SCL: x
where x is the SCL value of the message. You need to move to the spam folder any message with an SCL value of 4 or higher. To get this result, you should create the following rule:

SpamMover rules

This syntax is also acceptable:
   X-SCL:{>4 <11}
   X-CustomHeader:{>3.9 <11.1}
   X-Spam-Status: No, hits={>-4.9}
Note that you can set only one {...} expression in Value field.

Wildcards

You can use two wildcard expressions: "{?}" and "{*}" in the "Spam header or IMF SCL score" field.
"{?}" is used to represent a single character and "{*}" represents any number of characters.
Examples:
if you wish to move/forward/delete any message whose Subject line begins with "RE:" or "FW:", you should populate SMTP header and Value fields with the following expressions:

If you wish to move/forward/delete any message from yahoo.com, you should populate SMTP header and Value fields with the following expressions:

Uninstallation

2. Uncheck all items in the list in Per-Mailbox registration frame and click the Change button.
3. Uncheck all items in the list in Store-wide registration frame and press the Change button.
4. Click the Uninstall button in COM+ object frame.
5. Press the Exit button.

About this demo version.

SpamMover 2007 demo version works only for mailboxes whose names include "TEST". Examples:
      SpamMover1TEST
      Test2SM
Other mailboxes are unavailable. Also you can not register this demo version for all maiboxes at once (store-wide). The full product version has no limitations.

F.A.Q.

Q. Can SpamMover move the spam to a subfolder under the "inbox"?
A. Yes. Just use "inbox\yoursubfoldername" (without the quotes) as the target subfolder name.

Q. If I manage to apply SpamMover to the whole Information store, is SpamMover then automatically applied to future users and mailboxes that are created?
A. Definitely yes.

Q. I assume that the folder and rule creation is done on the server level. So it doesn't matter what client the user has, the Spam folder will be there and the mail will be filtered into it. So, updating to Outlook 2003 won't have any effect on SpamMover, right?
A. Yes, that's right.

Q. I know we can apply SpamMover "store-wide", but can we apply it to all message stores on a server with multiple stores?
A. Yes.

Q. Can we put some form of expression in the Value field? Something like: X-SMSMSE-SCL: >3. So any message with an SCL value of 4 or higher will be moved to the spam folder.
A. Yes. See the
Comparison Expressions section.

Q. I am about to purchase this product but I wondering regarding updates/patches. What are the policies regarding updates? Do you provide them freely or as a purchase?
A. As a registered user, you will get free updates for one year from the date of purchase.
Once the new version is ready, this information will be e-mailed to all registered users. We will send updates via e-mail to those who request them.

Q.  I have already ordered your software and want to view data relating to my order.
A.  Just visit our Customer Care Center.
