SpamTag for Microsoft Outlook

The GFI MailEssentials SpamTag Plugin is an addon for Microsoft Outlook that installs a toolbar on end users' machines, giving some control to users in management of spam emails. The plugin also synchronizes Microsoft Outlook Junk settings with GFI MailEssentials.

Whereas the Microsoft Outlook Junk functionality enables users to manage spam emails at client side, with the SpamTag plugin users can manage their spam emails at server level.

The GFI MailEssentials administrator can choose which of the following features and functions to enable:

  • Train the Bayesian Analysis filter
  • Add senders and/or domains to Personal Blocklist or Personal Whitelist
  • Automatically synchronize allowed and blocked senders in Microsoft Outlook with the GFI MailEssentials Personal Whitelist and Personal Blocklist respectively.
  • Automatically add users' contacts to the Personal Whitelist.


Users assigned full access to GFI MailEssentials are also allowed to add senders/domains to the GFI MailEssentials Email Global Blocklist & Global Whitelist.


When using SpamTag, install WCF HTTP Activation on the GFI MailEssentials server. To do this go to Server Manager > Features > Add Feature > .NET Framework > WCF Activation > HTTP Activation.
