When you start using the email new platform, you might notice more email spam making it into your inbox—but it doesn’t have to be this way. The new email platform has a spam filter and you can control how hard the it looks for email you didn’t ask for.
Here’s how to change the email spam settings:
1. Log into your inbox from the Internet/webmail.
2. In the left column there is a WebApps window. Click on SPAM Settings.
3. The settings are defaulted to “none” but you can change it by clicking on the other options. The Low setting will move all obvious spam email to the Junk folder (also found in the left column), but some may be delivered to your inbox. Medium will catch most spam, but you should also check your Junk folder occasionally to make sure important email wasn’t accidentally delivered there. If you select High, chances are all spam will be caught…but there’s also a higher likelihood that “real” email will also be misidentified, so keep a close eye on your Junk folder.
4. You can help the filter work even better by marking unwanted email as spam. The filter “learns” what to dump and what to keep in the future. All it takes is one click:
You can adjust these settings at any time until you find one that works best for you.
