    First with Shadow Copy I restored settings from before I was changing spam filters, then I restarted the services and IIS and all was up and running.

    SM support told me the problem was with configured incoming gateways. They have the option what to do with spam. In SM version before 6.5 you should not select &lsquo;No Action&rsquo; but allways select a funtion what to do with spam. So I selected to put something in the header for the low and medium spam settings.

    SM 6.5 shouldn't have this bug anymore
