How do I create a rule for spam messages in Webmail?

Note: This feature of Webmail is only available in Microsoft Internet Explorer; Safari and Firefox browsers have this option disabled.

  1. Go to Options tab on the top right corner. Select “Rules” and then “New Rule”
  2. Select “If the message includes specific words”.   Check the box for “In the sender’s address” See example at the bottom of this article.
  3. Below is an example of how to augment a rule to filter messages with certain words in the subject line and message body.

    It is recommended to have messages sent to the Junk Folder rather than deleted — you never know if someone, by chance, might include the same word you’ve blocked from your Inbox.

  4. Be sure to save the rule once you are finished.

For spam messages that appear to come in addressed from yourself, the most effective rule is to Junk or Delete messages specifically from yourself TO yourself. In webmail, the rule should apply to messages from the SENDER’S ADDRESS. Here is an example of that rule.
