Our non-profit uses POP3 protocol to retrieve email from the internet. Our provider has spam filters but they let a lot thru. I installed NST on our server to help catch what gets thru. Because we don't use SMTP to receive email, I only use the NST POP3 proxy to flag spam. It's working great, but I'd like more options.

1. I'd like to be able to redirect spam to another address.

and/or

2. I'd like to deposit spam directly into users' "Junk Mail" folder without having to create a rule on each and every client.

Are either of these possible in NST using only the POP3 Proxy? If not, could they possibly be added as options in a future release?

Thanks.

These options are not possible by design of the POP3 protocol, because mails
can not be redirected to another account during a POP3 session and the POP3
protocol is unaware of mail folders on the client.
