contains specific words as the Condition for your rule and Move
it to the specified folder as the Action for your rule.
Click on the underlined value that reads "contains specific words".
Type "*****SPAM*****" and click the Add button and then click the
OK button. That was five asterisks, followed by "SPAM", and then
five more asterisks. No spaces.
Click on the underlined value that reads specified. Select the
Spam folder that you just created and click the OK button.
- Type in a name for the new rule such as "SAproxy", and click on the OK button and then another OK button.
- Now, incoming spam will automatically go into the Spam folder. You may want to check through it periodically just in case you have any false positives.
