MailEnable Spam Filtering not working for me

Hello Gurus,

i have recently enabled spam protection on one of my mailenable server 5.0 V but it doesn't seems to be working for me. below are the set of steps i followed.

1) Downloaded filter from http://www.mailenable.com/utilities/addons/SPAM_FILTER.zip and follwed the steps

-Extract the zip file to the Mail Enable\Config\Filters\Templates directory
-Rename the {SPAM_FILTER}.MES file to {SPAM_FILTER}.BAK. This will allow you to keep the original spam filter if you wish to revert this change.
-Rename the {SPAM_FILTER}.DBG to {SPAM_FILTER}.MES.
-In the administration program, click the Spam Protection option to list all the checks that are made. Double click a check and click OK in the dialog box that appears. The purpose of this is for the spam filter to be updated with the new file.
-Restart the MTA service.

2) Also we activated three layer of spam protection on one of our mail box (Low, moderate and high) and we sent a spam email from outside but still it goes to the user’s inbox and no junk folder getting created on the webmail.

3) We have also enabled deliver junk emails to junk folder but no luck.

4) In Bayesian filter i have enabled auto training and in spam calculation method i have selected measure highest and lowest percentiles of the most frequent tokens.

after all this above steps the spam mails are going to inbox and not junk. can anyone please take this on priority and give a light to this darkness.

even after enabling the DNS blacklisting the mails don’t go to spam if this starts working 50% of spam traffic would come down.

I'm not an expert on MailEnable, but I do know that Bayesian filters do take some time to tune up.  How long did you wait for it to learn?

It's not so much time that Bayesian filters need as quantity of messages.  I wouldn't expect to see a big difference until a good deal of messages come through it.  Then you can tune it.  But it's another story if it's not at all active.  On one user, it took up to 3 days and about 1000 messages for the filter to know what was good and what was bad.

Bayesian filters are not something that can just "start working" immediately.  Also, how do you know you are generating a junk email for testing?  Is it coming from some sort of a known junk mail generation tool?

You can check if addresses of blacklists are OK. I know I had some wrong addresses while ago. Click on configure blacklists and make sure addresses of lists you are using are up to date.
