Post.Office : Administration : Testing Spam/SMTP Message Filters back to FAQ
Question:How do I test an SMTP Filter without deleting potentially important email?
Answer:You can disable the filter's actions by unchecking both actions:

Action: Action to be taken when a filter matches a message

- Discard - Copy To

at the top of the filter form page.

By viewing your logs, you can see when the filter matches on an Email. It will say something like:

00date0string-0800:IP Filter: Test MATCH: IP Src: <evil@spammer.com> IP dest: <innocent@victim.com>
or
00date0string-0800:Header Filter: Spam Killa' Src ip: <evil@spammer.com> Dst ip: <innocent@victim.com> Header: Received: from spammer.com ([62.145.92.250])
with some offending text from the email.

The log will not show:

00date0string-0800:SMTP-Accept:MESSAGE DISCARDED

because no action will be taken.
