Just Testing. Default Blocking Rules. Is there any way to change the Reject/Delete rule to Accept/Delete so that no 550 error is returned?

Be warned that accept/delete opens up ways to shoot yourself in the foot without even noticing: Once deleted, a mail is lost without a trace, neither the sender, nor the recipient will know that the mail transmission failed.

To do it, open nospamtoday.cf with a text editor. In the [..\AttachmentConfig] section, add the following line:

DropListPolicy="accept/delete"

Find documentation on the config file in section 7 of the manual.

Thank you. I'll read that section more carefully now.

nospamtoday.cf is rewritten and loses my by-hand changes if I change the filter specs from the admin client. Just an observation. Decided to use accept/redirect instead of accept/delete. My a/v filters will catch any crap and I'll see the senders address and received.

I believe if you stop the Admin client first, then make your changes that you would be okay... with editing by hand.

Support would know for sure - perhaps you also need to stop the NST service.

Yes, correct.

You need to restart the service (Linux: daemon) to make it use the new settings.
