Filtering Spam mail before it reaches your mobile

What you consider spam may be considered a useful business email by someone else. As such, our approach to spam management is to mark each incoming mail with a spam ranking and leave it to the end user to determine it’s disposition.

Whilst there are some mail clients (Thunderbird for example) that can be set to “trust SpamAssassin flags”, we recommend that you set this up within webmail as the rules can then be applied to incoming mails to filter based on the SpamRank into a folder of your choice – this way, the spam is handled even before it reaches your mobile device.

Here’s how you do it:

1. Login to webmail

2.Go to Mail-> Filters

3. Select “Spam Filters”

4.Set “Spam Level” to a number between 1 and 5 – the lower the number, the more stringent the filter. Mails with a spam rank higher than this number will  be moved into
