Scanning for spam

This tip shows you an agent that helps you scan for spam.

In our Firm, the Group Tools scan incoming mails for spam. The status can be [SPAM=80%], [SPAM=90%] or [SPAM=99%]. If they are detected as spam, the rules add the Status at the end of the subject field. My agent runs "before new mail arrives" and is looking in the field subject as to whether the subject contains [SPAM=80%], [SPAM=90%] or [SPAM=99%]. If the agent finds some spam mails it moves the mail to right folder. It's easy to adapt for other needs.

  Code: Sub Initialize
 Dim session As New NotesSession 
 Dim doc As NotesDocument
 Dim dbug As NotesLog
 Dim db As NotesDatabase
 Set session = New NotesSession
 Set sourcedb = session.CurrentDatabase
 Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
 Set doc = session.DocumentContext
 SearchString80 = "[SPAM=80%]"
 SourceString80 = doc.Subject(0)
 SearchString90 = "[SPAM=90%]"
 SourceString90 = doc.Subject(0)
 SearchString99 = "[SPAM=99%]"
 SourceString99 = doc.Subject(0)
 If Instr(1, SourceString80,SearchString80  ) Then
  Call doc.PutInFolder( "Spam 80%" )
  Call doc.RemoveFromFolder("($InBox)")
 End If
 If  Instr(1, SourceString90,SearchString90)  Then
  Call doc.PutInFolder( "Spam 90%" )
  Call doc.RemoveFromFolder("($InBox)")
 End If
 If Instr(1, SourceString99,SearchString99)  Then
  Call doc.PutInFolder( "Spam 99%" )
  Call doc.RemoveFromFolder("($InBox)")
 End If
End Sub
