If you receive large amounts of unwanted messages (spam), we recommend that you enable the Anti-Spam component and set the Recommended security level for it.

To enable Anti-Spam and set the Recommended security level:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Settings 2019.png button in the lower part of the window.

    The Settings window opens.

  3. Select the Protection section.
  4. Select the Anti-Spam component.

    The window displays the settings of Anti-Spam.

  5. Enable Anti-Spam using the switch.
  6. In the Security level section, make sure that the Recommended security level is set.

The following limitations apply to Anti-Spam:

  • The Anti-Spam component can only analyze messages that are fully downloaded from the mail server, regardless of the protocol used.
  • The Anti-Spam component does not check mail transferred using MAPI protocol.

The Anti-Spam component is disabled when you upgrade to a more recent application version. You can enable the component manually.

In some application versions, to enable the Anti-Spam component, you must accept the terms of the Statement regarding data processing for Anti-Spam.
