How to set an email spam filter through your Control Panel
How to set an email spam filter to your mailboxes through your Control Panel - overview
1. The first step is to log into your web hosting Control Panel. Click on the Control Panel login link in the upper right. Then you need to enter your login details in the Members' Area Login field - username and password. To complete the login procedure click the 'Login' button.
2. Now look at the Email Options section and click on the first icon - Email Manager.
3. To proceed further, select the mailbox that you wish to set an email filter for. Then click on the 'Email Filters' button to start defining the preferred filter settings.
Once in the Email Filters panel you will see a short list of settings you need to define to tell the email filter software how to treat incoming messages.
3.1. The first option is to choose where the filter should look for a specific word or phrase from the 'Where' drop-down menu. You have plenty of options, including the header area of a message, the message body, etc. In our tutorial movie we instruct the filter to check the subject line of a message for particular words.
3.2. The second option is to set the condition on which the specific words should be filtered - should the word be contained or not contained in the subject line; you can even specify the word as an opening part or as a closing part of the subject line.
3.3. Next specify how the filtered messages should be handled. They can be either redirected to a specific mailbox folder or just deleted. If you choose to redirect them, select 'Redirect to' from the 'Action' drop-down menu and specify the mailbox to which they should be sent in the email field. If you wish to delete the filtered messages, select 'Delete' from the 'Action' drop-down menu.
3.4. Click on Add Filter to add the created email filter. The green pop-up message will confirm for you that the email filter has been created successfully.
You can check your new email filter in the Email Filters table under the management panel.
If, for some reason, you wish to modify the newly created email filter - simply click on its corresponding 'Edit' icon.
Now you know how to create an email spam filter for any of your mailboxes.
