Increase spam score for certain target addresses


Sep 20, 2022
Hello Proxmox team!

We have a few alias e-mail addresses which we use to register at various sites which keep sending unwanted messages later.
For example we have user@domain.tld as main address, but we also have usermisc@domain.tld as an alias for user which can be used to communicate with non-humans.

This kind of manual separation works pretty well for us (requires some user discipline but that can be handled), because with incoming filters we can immediately redirect messages coming to the alias to a different inbox folder.

Since we introduced the Gateway in the picture, that could be improved a lot. The probability, in our case, that a message addressed to usermisc@domain.tld is spam is a lot higher than a message addressed to user@domain.tld.

So what we'd like is to just simply increase the spam score for all the messages addressed to usermisc@domain.tld and keep the rest the way PMG handles by default.

Is that possible?
