Question: How to let POP users see the Junk folder?

Postby 17629anand » Mon Sep 25, 2006 8:43 pm

the variables that control moving messages tagged as spam are zimbraSpamHeader and zimbraSpamHeaderValue. These are, unfortunately global config, so changes to them will affect the whole system. By default we set these to "X-Spam-Flag" and "yes". If you unset them, then messages should go to inbox. But, like I said, this is global to all users. Users can still write a user filter to move spam to junk based on the subject headers etc. It is a tradeoff between POP3 users seeing their spam vs other users not seeing spam by default (or having to create a custom rule).

That is perfectly fine for our purposes. If our users want to write a local script to filter their own spam - then that is fine with us - which is why we just want it tagged (headers & subj. changed) but not removed from the inbox. We believe the user should decide what is spam and ham, not us.
So, how does one go about changing these settings, and is the process reversable (just in case)?
