Last week we finally had time to focus on our spam problem. With some assistance from our friendly SonicWall tech support person, we installed a software update and tweaked our configuration. Turns out that at some point we white-listed everything from cor.org, no doubt to address a false positive situation, but that was a bad idea – too much spam is spoofed to come from your own domain. With the new software and the tweaks, we’re back to nearly perfect, and just in time for the long Christmas-New Year’s break when many of our staff take vacation. Almost no spam is getting through to our users’ inboxes. Wee hoo!
SonicWall, I owe you an apology. When properly configured, SonicWall Mail Security is every bit as good as the spam filter built-in to Outlook 2003.
