Setting up a SPAM filter for Dropzone.com Mail Can't Post

Heya all,

A while ago we installed SpamAssassin to help manage the high volumes of spam users are receiving at their dropzone.com email addresses. Here are a few easy steps to set up a filter that will take care of 95% of the spam you receive:

To set up a filter, from your email interface go to: Options -> Advanced Filters

Click on "Add new" to create a new filter. Set up one of the two filters below:

1) Delete all messages marked as spam before they are delivered.

To do this, use the following settings for your spam filter:

If Subject
contains
*****SPAM*****
then: Delete it


If you use this method, messages will be deleted from the server before they are delivered to you. You will never see them, they will not be sent to your Trash folder.

2) Route all messages marked as spam to a "Junk" folder.

To do this, use the following settings for your spam filter:

Create a folder called "Junk" (or any other creative name you come up with!)

If Subject
contains
*****SPAM*****
then: Move to
Folder: Junk


If you use this method, then messages will be routed to your custom folder. You have to manually delete them from there. After you delete them here they will appear in your Trash folder. remember to empty that from time to time.

Make sure you only have one of these filters running. The choice is yours delete them before they ever get to you or sort them to a folder of your choice. Smile

That's it!
