This article will show you how to set up email filters. You might want to set up email filters to block spam or to organise your emails and have them sent automatically to different folders. You can also set up email filters to have certain emails forwarded to another email address.
Here is how you can manage your email filters:
- Log in to cPanel.
- In cPanel, if you want to create an email filter for all of your email accounts, go to 'Global Email Filters' and proceed to point 4. If it's an email filter for a specific email account, go to 'Email Filters'.
- You'll see a list of your emails. Click 'Manage Filters' to the right of the email you'd like to manage.
- Click on 'Create a New Filter' there.
- Give it a title, that is relevant to the filter, under 'Filter Name'.
- Then, choose the 'Rules'.
- In the 'Actions' dropdown menu, choose the one you'd like. When we next mention "expand", it means to click on the plus (+) icon. If you want to send it to trash, then choose 'Deliver to Folder', click 'Browse', and if you're in 'Global Email Filters', expand the domain first, the email account second, and click on 'TRASH', but if you're in 'Email Filters', expand 'INBOX' and click on 'TRASH'.
- Click 'Create'.
