How to setup filters in your A/I webmail

What is a filter?

From july 2010 on the A/I webmail system allows every user to setup filters autonomously.

A filter is a rule allowing a user to move, copy, remove messages from your inbox depending on their sender, subject, size or any other header you can think of.

You will find a web interface to manage your personal filters in your webmail, after you log in our home page with user and password.

Who needs filters?

Filters can be used by anyone, but we can think of at least two kinds of users that REALLY need them.

First those who check out their mail via WEB: filters will give you the chance to organize your mail in folders and subfolders very easily.

Secondly those who check out their mail exclusively using a POP mail client: these users will need at least one filter to be able to see the mail we drop directly into the “Spam” folder in their mailbox.

How can I add a filter?

  1. Log into your web mailbox
  2. Go to the “Settings” section
  3. Go to the “Filters” section
  4. Click on the “Add Filter” icon
  5. Choose a straightforward name for your filter (like the criteria you are using to sort the messages)
  6. With the first dropdown menu choose which header you are using to sort the messages: sender, subject, size, etc.
  7. With the second dropdown menu choose what should be checked of that header: contains a word, is equal to a word, etc.
  8. In the text box next to the menus write the word you want the header checked against
  9. Click on the Add button
  10. Choose what should happen to the messages matching the filter criteria: be moved to a folder; be deleted; be forwarded to a certain mail address; and so on.
  11. Click on the Save button

How to add a filter to read the “Spam” folder via POP mail client

Follow the instruction on how to add a filter in the previous paragraph.

  1. Choose for this filter a standard name: retrospam
  2. The rule should match messages whose “X-Spam-Flag” header is equal to “YES” and should move those messages back into the “INBOX” folder.
  3. In the first dropdown menu choose “[…]”
  4. In the text boxes that appeared out of the blue write: “X-Spam-Flag” and “YES” respectively
  5. In the second dropdown menu choose “is equal to”
  6. Click on the Add button
  7. Click on the Save button

If everything went smoothly you should see something similar to the image below as your filter setting.
