I'm running the business version of ClearOS 7 and am having issues recently with the content filter. Recently we are receiving allot of emails regarding weight loss and diet pills. I have selected all the relevant phrase lists in the content filter, but it's not picking up these emails. For the most part, the SPAM filter is picking them up, but the level is not enough for them to be automatically discarded by the antispam. My content filter is updating as it should - i'm just guessing these these are new phrases and yet to be added to the content filter.

Is there a way to manually add phrases to the content filter? Or is there a way to suggest additions to the content filter moderators to add to the next update?

Thanks in advance.

    The content filter and the spam filter are different things. The Content Filter app in the marketplace will filter web traffic conducted through the web proxy firewall. This won't touch emails however. The mail anti-spam engine uses several technologies to filter mail. One of them is spam-assassin. You can modify your /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf file in spam assassin to manually override some of your heuristics. Once it is detected, your normal spam settings will kick into play and flag it or drop it depending on its spamminess.
