Using Postini Spam and Virus Filtering

Posted: Thursday, January 13th, 2011 by Kevin

Lanlogic uses Postini for it’s spam and virus filtering. This is a great tool, as long as you actually use it. If you have changed your Postini password but haven’t really explored the options, this document should help. If you have never used Postini, let us know so that we can get you a temporary password and get you up and running. Here are the basics:

  1. Login to https://login.postini.com with your email address and Postini password. If this is your first time signing in, use the temporary password in your welcome message then set a password you will remember.
    NOTE: if you copy and paste the temporary password, be very careful to not copy a space at the end, as this will make the password not work
  2. Once you are in, you will see the regular Message Center interface
  3. Here you can Delete, Read, or Deliver your messages. To get to the SPAM settings, click on My Settings at the top right
  4. Here you can control all of your filtering settings
  5. The Junk Settings will be where you do most of your settings changes.
    1. In approved senders you can do 3 things, approve individual senders, approve an entire domain, and approve mailing lists
      NOTE: It is generally unwise to approve your own domain. Many spammers will spoof your own domain to get through filters like this
    2. In blocked senders you can block either individuals or entire domains
      NOTE: much like approving your own domain, you can actually block your own domain here. This is a little more extreme than not allowing it and can force more spam to be trapped
    3. In Manage Junk Filter, you can determine how aggressive you would like Postini should be
