Configuring X-Header in FOPE


Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-04-19

When you select the Add X-Header option as the Spam Action setting in Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), you can add customized X-Header comments to messages that have been identified as spam by the FOPE service. The X-Header is then added to the Internet header of all subsequent spam messages.

The X-Header option gives you a legitimate count of how many email messages were filtered as spam. You can establish mail server rules or client-side rules to filter email messages that are marked with X-Headers, if needed.

Configure a Spam Action setting for a domain
  1. On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.

  2. In the Domains list, click the domain that you want to modify. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.

  3. In the Service Settings section of the center pane, next to Spam Action, click Edit.

  4. In the Spam Action dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To use the Spam Quarantine option, select Spam Quarantine.

    • To use the spam redirection option, select Redirect to other address, and then type the email address where redirected spam messages should be sent. This email address must exist within the domain.

    • To use the subject modification option, select Modify subject, and then type an identifying word or phrase that should be added to all messages that are identified as spam.

    • To use the X-Header option, select Add X-Header, and then type the X-Header information that should be added messages that are identified as spam.

  5. Click Save.
