Moving SPAM e-mail Out of Your Inbox
By Teresa Downey
We’re getting more and more SPAM (unwanted
e-mail) here. Having a way to move the spam automatically out of your
Inbox can save time and ease the frustration associated with SPAM
e-mails. The web page below will give you details on the software we run
here which rates the SPAM as it arrives at SLAC and modifies the Subject
line to show the rating. More #’s means it is more likely to be SPAM.
Instructions for creating rules to move
the SPAM e-mail:
We do not recommend you automatically
delete the SPAM e-mail because there are false-positives now and then.
It makes sense for the Outlook 2003 users to move this e-mail into the
existing Junk E-mail folder. Then you can periodically just scan through
this folder and clean it out.
Later this year we’ll add a ‘spam
quarantine’ feature to our server software so we can hold the SPAM
e-mails on the server and not even send them to you.
