If you ever wondered why you are getting a lot of Junk/ Spam mails into your inbox, then here is an easy setting you can enable through your webmail account in order to avoid receiving spam from unsolicited sources. Or if you have been told from someone sending you email they have received a bounce back message marked as spam, you can use the instructions below to 'whitelist' their email address so you will receive them.
Here is all you need to do to get rid of these Junk/Spam mails -
- Login to your webmail account using https://mail.oneeach.com
- On the Task bar, select "Options".
- Select "Spam Filters".
This option is predominantly used to set your filter settings that can be used on Email accounts sending Spam/junk email into your Inbox.
"Address" corresponds to the Email address which you would want to filter.
"Type" contains the type of filter which includes the following -
- Whitelist From - E-mail from these addresses will not be marked as spam. You may use '*' as a wildcard to allow a large number of addresses at one time. E.g. Whitelist From '*@aol.com' will not mark any message that claims to be from aol.com as spam.
- Don't Whitelist From - This address will be excluded from a previous whitelist and will be treated as a normal address, i.e. it will not be automatically allowed.
- Blacklist From - E-mail from these addresses will always be marked as spam. You may use '*' as a wildcard to block a large number of addresses at one time. E.g. Blacklist From '*@aol.com' will mark all messages that claims to be from aol.com as spam.
- Don't Blacklist From - This address will be excluded from a previous blacklist and will be treated as a normal address, i.e. it will not be automatically denied.
- Whitelist To - E-mail to these addresses will not be marked as spam. This is useful for allowing e-mail lists. For example, you can allow all messages from an e-mail list that sends to List@oneeach.com. You may use '*' as a wildcard to allow a large number of addresses at one time. E.g. Whitelist To '*@aol.com' will not mark any message that claims to be to aol.com as spam.
"General Settings" include the following options -
- Spam Score - Once all SpamAssassin tests have been run, the resulting score is matched against this value, and if greater than this value, the e-mail message is marked as spam. We recommend an initial value of '5', but you will eventually want to change it to '2' or '3'**.
- Rewrite Subject Line - SpamAssassin can re-write the subject line of e-mail that has been determined to be spam by prefixing the original subject with this value.
- Acceptable Languages - Select all the languages you expect to receive e-mail in.
- Use DCC - Checks messages against the DCC (Distrubuted Checksum Clearinghouse) to see if a message matches a known spam message.
- Use SpamNet - Checks messages against SpamNet to see if a message is a known spam message.
**For the first 1-2 weeks of using your new email account, we recommend "whitelisting" the addresses you know you do not want marked as SPAM; after you have most of those addresses "whitelisted", that is when you should change your "SPAM Score" to '2' or '3'. We recommend still checking your SPAM filter periodically for next couple of weeks to make sure you didn't miss any addresses.
Once these are set, you will have to select the "Save Settings" button.
