Creating an E-Mail Filter in Netscape 7.x for WindowsIMPORTANT NOTE: The only situation where filtering would be applicable with Barracuda is if you have your options for Quarantine turned to off (No) and Spam Filtering turned to on (Yes)
- Open Netscape.
- Under the Window menu, select Mail & Newsgroups.
- Under the Tools menu, select Message Filters.
- In the Message Filters window that pops up, click on New.
- In the Filter Rules window that pops up, type in a name for your filter where it says Filter name. Here we used Spam.
- Choose the Match any of the following option where it says For incoming messages that if it is not already selected.
- Make sure that the two drop-down boxes have Subject and contains selected if they are not already selected.
- In the text box to the right of contains, type in the word [SPAM] and make sure to include the brackets.
- Click the More button.
- Another row of options will appear below the first one. Keep “Subject” and “contains” selected and then type in [QUAR] in the textbox to the right.
- Where it says Perform this action, select the Move to folder box.
- Select the folder you would like to move the filtered messages to from the drop-down box. You can select Trash or create a new folder.
- To create a new folder, click on the New Folder button. Under the New Folder window that pops up, type in a name for your folder. Here we used Spam. Select an option under Create as a subfolder of. If you want your folder to appear as a subfolder under your main account then make sure to first select your account name until the secondary popup menu appears and then select choose this for the parent. Then click the OK button.
- Click OK to exit out of Filter Rules.
- Make sure the Enabled box is checked on the Message Filters window and then close the window (or click the OK button, depending on the version of Netscape you are running).
NOTE: We recommend creating a new folder called SPAM that you should monitor occasionally to prevent accidental deletion of messages that should not have been marked as SPAM.
Additional Notes: These instructions were based on Netscape 7.02. If you are running a more recent version of Netscape, your options may differ.
