You can use the SpamTitan Outlook Add-In to do the following:

Allow and Block Senders

You can add and remove senders from your allow or block list:

  • Select an email and click the Block List dropdown menu to select Add to Block List or Remove from Block List.

  • Select an email and click the Allow List dropdown menu to select Add to Allow List or Remove from Allow List.

Mark Email as Spam or Ham

You can mark an email as spam or ham (clean email), which submits it directly to the Bayes database for analysis. This increases the effectiveness of the Bayesian filter in identifying spam and helps reduce the number of false positives.

  • Select the sender you want to mark and click Flag as SPAM to mark as spam.

  • Select the sender you want to make and click Flag as HAM to mark as ham.

Check the Status of a Sender

To see if a sender is already on your allow or block list or not, select an email from that sender and click Check Listed. A message will display to tell you the status of that sender:
