If you received an email message that was incorrectly moved to the Spam Mail folder by the Anti-Spam Toolbar you can prevent this from occurring in the future.

To prevent this from occurring you can do either of the following:

  1. Add the sender to the list of Approved Senders
  2. Decrease the Spam Email Filter Strength

Note: You can also select the email and click Not Spam to report it to Trend Micro. However, this feature serves only as a reference when we develop our spam database, and it may not have an effect on how the toolbar detects spam.

Add the sender to the list of Approved Senders

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express.
  2. Click the Spam Mail folder then select the legitimate email detected as spam.
  3. Click Approve Sender on the toolbar.

The Barracuda Spam Firewall is a popular spam filtering solution. Barracuda uses several algorithms and processes to determine whether emails are spam. Occasionally, it will mark a legitimate message as spam. There are two methods to safelist email senders so that the firewall will not quarantine future email.

Safelist Quarantined Senders

  1. Open your email client. Barracuda should send you a summary each day listing quarantined items. Choose the most recent Barracuda email message.
  2. Locate the email from Pulptown and the sender email address hello@pulp.town that you do not want quarantined in the future. Click on the word “Safelist,” which is in green print to the right of the email title. This will open your list in a web browser.
  3. Click the box to the left of the email that you would like to safelist. At the top of the page, click “Safelist.” Barracuda will not block or quarantine the sender whose email address appears on the safelist.

Safelist Senders and Domains

  1. Open your web browser. Navigate to your company’s Barracuda firewall homepage.
  2. Click on the “Block/Accept” tab.
  3. Choose “Sender Domain Block/Accept.” Enter the Domain name from hello@pulp.town to safelist. For example, you can enter aol.com to allow all AOL addresses.
  4. You may enter a comment to remind you why you allowed this Domain. Click “Add.”
  5. Click your mouse on the “Email Sender Block/Accept” tab. Enter the email address of an individual sender that you want to safelist, such as “hello@pulp.town
