    Say I have some members from before I used xenforo and it's excellent spam screening process, can I do a Admin CP search for users who meet any of the criteria for flagging based on SFS name, IP and email?

    I can't see this in advanced search.

    Most of the spam criteria (SFS) applies to registration.

    However, if you have spam phrases and Askismet set up then any existing members will trigger those.

    How do they trigger them, do i need to run something to make the trigger happen? Or do you mean only when they post will those be triggered?

    What I want really is to search/scan the existing membership for known spammers.

    Askimet, if configured, is automatically run as they post.

    SFS and the other spam measures are run automatically when a user registers.

    So neither will do anything about sleeping spammers, ah well let's hope askimet catches them or one of my very observant mods.

    Askimet will, yes. It works as the post.

    The registration systems will not, no.
