ASA5510 CSC problem with spam


We have a problem with an ASA5510 Security Plus with the Content Security and Control Security Services Module.

We configure the action for messages identified as spam on the Mail (POP3) with the option Delete the message. But when a spam is incoming, the ASA deletes it and an sends an e-mail to the addressee to inform him that an e-mail was detect as a spam and deleted.

The problem is that we have a user who receive 80-100 spam during a day. So he receives each day 80-100 mail from the ASA to inform him that a mail was delete. I don't find where we can disable the automatic mail.

Thank you for your help.



Re: ASA5510 CSC problem with spam

change the notification settings

If you are satisfied with the default notification setup, no further action is required. But, you can review the notification options and decide whether you want to change the defaults. For example, you can send a notification to the administrator when a security risk has been detected in an e-mail message. For SMTP, you can also notify the sender or recipient.

Check the Administrator and Recipient boxes for email notification. You can also tailor the default text in the notification message to something more appropriate for your organization such as in this screen shot.

Thank you for your response,

But we don't have notifications option for the POP3 Anti-spam.

We have just Target with the Filter Threshold, the Approved Senders and Blocked Senders, and the Action, Stamp or Delete message.

And the e-mail are not send to the administrator, but at the recipient box.
