I have KSPam for Domino.  I am trying to configure this application to tag email from specific domains as good using the new all rule action; however, the changes that I have made does not seem to be working.

Is kSpam working at all, I mean, do your mails pass through the mailspam.nsf or mailgood databases? What are your rules and what did you change?

KSpam is working, looks like it is picking up over 90% certified spam.  My problem is configuring the system to setup filtering to allow certain domains to be excluded from being spammed.

Domains to be spammed? You mean you handle mail for multiple domains? Or do you mean that you receive mails from domains that you consider valid?

You created an Allow-rule, with the domain name in the From?

I created an allow rule that will except mail from all users in domain xyz.com but when I receive a test message from someone in that domain it is stored in the spammed mail file.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Here's an example of an Allow-rule:

Allow Rule:

Priority: 1000
From contains: Experts Exchange
To contains:
Subject contains:
Body contains:
Attachments:

You know you have to restart the router (or the server) to activate rules? Or did you enable the option Reload configuration every hour (KS_RELOAD)?

so the "from contains" field has display a username and not a domain name?
I did not know I had to restart the router or edit the configuration document, can I just run a load ksreload command?

No, the load command you gave is totally wrong. There are only 2 entities active for kSpam: kSpam and bload (assuming you have a Windows server). kSpam can be started and stopped from the console, using load and tell, but bload is an Extension Manager dll, started differently by the server. It is probably unloaded when it is no longer required, and that is when the router quits. The reload-parameter can be set to force kSpam to reload the rules every hour. If you don't change the rules a lot, you can switch it off.

By the way, I have another example of an allow-rule:

Allow Rule:

Priority: 1000
From contains: dominoarea.org
To contains:
Subject contains:
Body contains:
Attachments:

With a domain name...
