Word matching

This filter is valid for the following senders: External and Local. The default SCL value with a simple multiplier depends on the word groups selected in the filter. The SCL points set in the word group are awarded per hit.

This filter allows you to recognise previously defined words and phrases in both the subject line and the body of the email and rate them with penalty or bonus SCL points. Each appearance or, depending on the settings, absence of such an expression is awarded with the points set in the filter.

If one or more words from the configured word groups are found in the email, an optional email with a notification can be sent to a local email address. This email will contain the sender of the email, the recipient, subject, and the words found.
