There are two steps to get Netscape running
properly with Mailshell Anti-Spam.
- For each Netscape POP email account you want filtered
by Mailshell Anti-Spam, edit its account settings in Netscape.
- If you want to move or delete your junk mail, create
a filtering rule in Netscape.
Changing Settings in Netscape
These step-by-step instructions will show
you how to configure Netscape 7.0 for Mailshell Anti-Spam
Choose Edit > Mail & Newsgroups
Select the account you wish to filter and
click on Server Settings.
You should see something like:
Write down your current values for "Server
Name" and "User Name". You can always restore these original
values if you don't want Mailshell Anti-Spam to filter this
account any longer. In the above example, the "Server Name"
is "mail.isp.com" and the "User Name" is "jane".
Please note: If the "Server
Name" server is another program running on your computer
Then you need to refer to the manual for that
program to connect to Mailshell Anti-Spam.
Otherwise, make the following two changes:
- User Name: enter the "#" character after your
username, followed by your Server Name information (in
the example, this is given as "Jane#mail.isp.com"). Note:
Hotmail users should use "username#hotmail.com". Currently,
only the Hotmail Inbox folder is retrieved. MSN users
should use "username#msn.com".
- Server Name: replace your existing mail server
name with "localhost".
The screen should now look like:
Click the OK button.
You've now configured Netscape 7.0 to retrieve
mail from Mailshell Anti-Spam Universal. Repeat for each
POP email account you want Mailshell Anti-Spam to filter.
Let's continue by creating a Netscape message
filter to process the spam you receive.
Creating a Netscape Message Filter
Please note: The filtering rule
assumes that you have already configured Mailshell Anti-Spam
Universal to "Enable Spam Flagging".
Choose Tools > Message Filters.
Click the New button.
Enter a Filter name (in the example
below, it is given as 'SpamCatcher').
Choose Customize from the Subject
pull-down menu. Enter X-SpamCatcher-Flag as your
New message header. Click the Add button and
then OK. Enter 'Yes' in the right-most, empty
text field. Please refer to the screenshot below.
You can opt to move messages containing "X-SpamCatcher-Flag:
Yes" to a new folder you create (e.g. SpamCatcher) or simply
delete the message. You can choose either of these actions
by selecting from the Perform this action: pull-down
To move it to a new folder, click the New
folder button (in the example below, it is given as
'SpamCatcher'). Choose from the pull-down menu to select
the location of your folder and click OK. Then click
OK again to close the Message Filters window.
Congratulations! Netscape is now configured
for Mailshell Anti-Spam Universal.
Be sure to read the instructions carefully,
much of the information given is for example purposes only.
