Hi Everyone,


Merry Xmas and happy new year to you all.


Follow the instruction on KB17286, I tried to setup the anti-spam feature on my SRX210 after purchasing and enter the feature license:


set security utm utm-policy spam-block anti-spam smtp-profile junos-as-defaults

Verification of UTM Anti-Spam Working:

root@APESMAMelSRX> show security utm anti-spam status
SBL Whitelist Server:
SBL Blacklist Server:

DNS Server:
    Primary  :, Src Interface: ge-0/0/0
    Secondary:, Src Interface: ge-0/0/1
    Ternary  :, Src Interface: fe-0/0/2

 Using any ip from the top 100 to check the status (, e.g., checking the feature status, and the results were "Return NON SPAM..."

root@APESMAMelSRX> test security utm anti-spam profile as-profile test-string
Anti-spam test result:
Return NON SPAM, action Pass, reason No match

 However, another query indicated that the anti-spam feature was working:

root@APESMAMelSRX> show security utm anti-spam statistics
 UTM Anti Spam statistics:

Statistics for the last 10 days (permitted emails / spams):

is the anti-spam feature really working? Fact is that spams are delivered to the users's inbox. I am not sure what has been missing.


Could you please help?


Thanks in advance,
