Create Rules for Your Email Reader

To use the Tag action in spamBlocker, it is best to configure your email reader to sort messages. With most email readers, such as Outlook, Gmail, and Mac Mail, you can set rules that automatically send email messages with tags to a subfolder. Some email readers also let you create a rule to automatically delete the message.

Because you can use a different tag for each spamBlocker category, you can set a different rule for each category. For example, you can set one rule to move any email message with the ***SUSPECT*** tag in the subject line to a Suspect subfolder in your Inbox. You can set another rule that deletes any email message with the ***SPAM*** tag in the subject line.

For instructions on how to configure the Microsoft Outlook email client, see Send Spam to an Outlook Folder. For information about how to use this procedure on other types of email clients, look at the user documentation for those products.

If you use spamBlocker with the SMTP proxy, you can have spam email sent to the Quarantine Server. For more information on the Quarantine Server, see About the Quarantine Server.
