Spam Filtering Preferences

×
Spam filtering tools work to detect and filter out spam. The changes you make to your spam filtering preferences will be in effect regardless of your email software; even if you use Outlook, Netscape Mail, Eudora, etc., your spam will be filtered, according to your preferences, before the email reaches your inbox.
1. Click the Settings link, located in the upper right corner.
2. Click the Spam Filtering Preferences link.
3. In the Spam Filtering Levels section, indicate your desired level of spam filtering.
4. In the Spam Handling section, indicate how the spam filter should handle incoming spam.
Deliver to Spam folder - Spam emails will be delivered to your Spam folder.
Delete the email immediately - Spam emails will be deleted automatically.
Deliver to this alternate email address - Spam emails will be forwarded to the email address you indicate.
Add "[SPAM]" to the beginning of the Subject line - Spam emails will be delivered to your Inbox, but will include text "[SPAM]" in the Subject line.
Ignore (take no action) - Spam emails will be delivered to your Inbox.
5. If your spam emails are being delivered to your Spam folder, you may want to limit the amount of spam that is stored in the folder. Indicate how often your Spam folder should be purged automatically - after a specific number of days or specific number of emails. Or, to turn off the automatic cleanup, select "Never automatically delete spam."
6. To further reduce the amount of spam you may receive, you can enable greylisting.
7. Click the Save button.
Note: If you are using email software (Outlook, Netscape Mail, Eudora, etc.) with a POP3 connection, you will need to log in to webmail to view your Spam folder.
