Adding a Spam-reporting footer to an inbound email

Situation You want to add a Spam-reporting footer to the bottom of inbound emails, either for the entire company or individual users.
Solution Add Spam disclaimer through Spam tab 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 Company Settings > Spam.
  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 Users & Groups > Users and then click on the desired user. In the gray tab options that have now appeared, 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.  

If you notice the Easy-spam-disclaimer footer is not added to some inbound emails, please review Easy-spam-disclaimer not being added
