There are three Junk Mail Settings levels:

  • Off - All messages will go to your Inbox
  • Standard - Messages considered to be junk by emailMyName's junk filters will automatically go to the Junk Mail Settings folder, while all other messages will go to your Inbox.
  • Exclusive - All messages will go to the Junk Mail Settings folder unless the message is from any contact in your Address Book, from a contact located in Do Not Block or from emailMyName.

To change these settings, click the circle next to the setting you want.

You can also determine how long messages can stay in the Junk Mail folder before being automatically deleted. Choices from the drop-down menu include: Never, 90 days, 30 days, 15 days, 7 days, 2 days, and 0 days.

Warning: If you select 0 days, you will not be able to review messages in the Junk Mail folder. Junk mail will be deleted as it is received.

When finished click Save. Your updated setting will appear at the top of the Junk Mail Settings folder screen.
