Spectranet has begun labelling messages that appear to be junk mail as "Possible SPAM". Below are instructions on how to automatically filter these messages into a folder for storing junk mail. This system is effective and highly accurate. However, it is strongly recommended you investigate these messages before you delete them so you do not risk deleting real mail!

  1. Outlook Express 6
  2. Netscape/Mozilla Mail
  3. Eudora 5.1
  4. Outlook XP

Outlook Express 6

  1. From the opening screen of Outlook Express, click on the Tools pull down menu, and then go to Message Rules, and Mail.

    Tools, Message Rules, Mail
  2. From the Message Rules window click on New

    Message Rules, New
  3. In the New Mail Rule window, place a checkmark beside "Where the subject line contains specific words" and "Move it to the specified folder"

    Then in the rule description click on "contains specific words"

    New message rule window
  4. Type "possible SPAM" in the first field and then click on Add, followed by Ok.
