   We are running version and we get a lot of SFDB detections which get quarantined. Most of them appear to have similar subjects and we have created a Keyword Filter black list to not quarantine emails with a certain subjects. However, it appears to do SFDB scanning and quarantine emails before getting to the keyword filter blacklist. Is there a way to change this so it checks our blacklists first?

Hi Bluefly,

You are correct - the SFDB filter is applied before the keyword filter is reached. SpamFilter applies filters in a specific order, which cannot be changed. The order in which the various filters/blacklists/whitelists are applied is always available in the last posting on this thread:" rel="nofollow -
