Learn to use the Spam button and SpamBlocker settings in Enhanced WebMail.
Spam is electronic junk mail or any unsolicited email. It is hard to eliminate spam, but WebMail provides a report spam feature that lets you forward spam messages to an abuse center. That way WebMail can try to prevent them from reaching your Inbox in the future.
There are three spam filtering options in Enhanced WebMail.
- Delete incoming junk email automatically - this setting will remove junk email before it reaches the Inbox.
- Deliver junk email to the WebMail Spam folder for later review - this creates a Spam folder and moves spam messages to that folder.
- Tag junk email with "Spam" - the word "Spam" appears in the subject line and the email is delivered to the Inbox.
You can also move messages from the Spam folder to your Inbox using the Not Spam button.
