You want to add a Spam-reporting footer to the bottom of inbound emails, either for the entire company or individual users.


Add Spam disclaimer through Spam Settings under Company or User settings.


Adding A Spam Disclaimer

To add Proofpoint's Easy-spam-reporting disclaimer footer to inbound mail, follow these simple steps:

  1. Navigate to Security Settings > Email > Spam Settings.
  2. From the Include an easy-spam reporting disclaimer in passed email dropdown, select Yes.
  3. Click Save.

If you want to add the footer to individual users and not the entire company, navigate to Administration > User Management > Users and then click on the desired user. At the top of the 'User Profile' page, click Spam and then follow steps 2 and 3 above.

Selecting Yes from the dropdown list will append a footer to the bottom of all inbound email, stating that it has been scanned by Proofpoint Essentials for spam and viruses, as well as adding a great easy-spam-reporting feature which allows users to immediately report if the email has been misclassified from within the message.
