To configure the local-based AntiSpam filter in the GUI:

  1. Go to Security Profiles > Email Filter.
  2. Click Create or select an existing profile and click Edit.
  3. In the Firewall policy, create or edit a rule.
  4. Set the inspection-mode to Proxy-based.
  5. Enable the Email Filter option and select the profile previously created.
  6. Set SSL Inspection to a profile that has deep SSL inspection enabled.
    • Deep inspection is required if you intend to filter SMTP, POP3, IMAP, or any SSL/TLS encapsulated protocol.
    • Below is an example of a profile with deep SSL inspection enabled.
