Manage junk settings: WebMail

UVic's WebMail has spam filters that you can enable. Subscribing to these filters will block incoming emails that online groups have identified as spam.

  1. Login to your WebMail account.
  2. Click on Options, located near the top of the page.
  3. Click on SPAM Filters.
  4. Using the drop-down list, select where you want your spam moved to on delivery (your Junk E-mail folder is recommended). Then, in the second drop-down list, select what you want to scan (Unread messages only is recommended).
  5. Select which spam list(s) you would like to subscribe to by clicking on the checkbox next to the list name. You may select them all of them.
  6. When you are finished, click Save.

You should check your Junk E-mail folder (or whatever folder you selected in step 4) periodically to ensure legitimate emails didn't accidentally get tagged as spam.
