What tasks does the Barracuda Spam Firewall's mail client plugin perform?

  • Type: Knowledgebase
  • Date changed: 4 years ago
Solution #00001705

Scope:
Applies to all Barracuda Spam Firewall models 300 and above in use with a mail client plugin, all firmware versions.

Answer:
Barracuda Networks provides access to mail client plugin that lets end users mark messages as Spam and Not Spam directly from their mail client. In addition, the plugin automatically creates and maintains a personalized whitelist based on the user's behavior. The whitelist generated by the plug-in and the classification made by the user only affect that user's individual Bayesian database and not the global database.

The plugin performs the same functionality as classification from the Basic > Message Log page of the Barracuda Spam Firewall's web interface, except that all feedback is stored in a per-user Bayesian database on the system. This mechanism prevents users from compromising the global Bayesian database, and results in more specific scoring based on a user’s personal mail preferences.
