Selecting Foreign Language Options

Depending upon the settings applied by your email administrator, you may have the option to block email that contains foreign characters. A large volume of spam is transmitted using Russian, Cyrillic, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese non-English character sets. If you normally receive email in these languages, configure your settings so that these messages pass through the filters.


Note: This option does not filter mail using the English character set in a different language such as Spanish or French.

By default, the system allows mail with non-English language character sets but adds a subject tag of FOREIGN: before the mail subject line. Foreign language filtering options can be applied individually on a per-language basis.

You can filter messages with foreign language content with the same options described in Configuring Message Filtering. Additionally, you can remove a language from special treatment by deleting the language. Deleting the language means that Red Condor processes the message as it would with any other message, without any special rules.


Note: You will not be able to delete a language if your email administrator has blocked that option. If so, a pop-up window alerts you that the filtering option has been reset to the administrator default.

You can later add a language that has previously been deleted.

  1. Click on the Policies tab.
