    Antispam Events and Logs Overview

    Use this page to view information about security events based on antispam policies. The event viewer provides a view of all antispam events and the action taken by the antispam scanner.

    The antispam scanner inspects and block spam by scanning inbound and outbound SMTP e-mail traffic. The filtering can be server-based using an external spam block list server or local-based using local lists (blacklists and whitelists) for matching.

    Using the time-frame slider, you can quickly focus on the area of activity that you are most interested in. Once the time range is selected, all of the data presented in your view is refreshed automatically. You can also use the Custom button to set a custom time range.

    There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the summary view or the detail view.

    Antispam Events—Summary View

    Click Summary View for a brief summary of all the antispam events in your network. The top of the page has a swim lane graph of all antispam events.

    You can use the widget at the bottom of the page to view source IP addresses of the network traffic; sorted by event count.

    Antispam Events—Detail View

    Click Detail View for comprehensive details of events in a tabular format that includes sortable columns. You can aggregate the events using the Group by option. For example, you can group the events based on source country. The table includes information such as the event name, UTM category, source IP address, source country, and so on.

    See Table 1 for descriptions of columns in this view.
