SpamAssassin spamassassin

Adobe Campaign can be configured to work with SpamAssassin, a third-party service used for email spam filtering. This allows you to score emails to determine whether a message runs the risk of being considered as spam by the anti-spam tools used upon receipt.

SpamAssassin leverages a variety of spam-detection techniques, including:

  • DNS-based and fuzzy-checksum-based spam detection
  • Bayesian filtering
  • External programs
  • Denylists
  • Online databases
SpamAssassin must be installed and configured on the Adobe Campaign application server. For more on this, refer to this section.
The rules that govern whether an element is spam or not are managed via SpamAssassin and can be edited by an administrator with privileges.
