Сonfigure e-mail filters.
There are two subsections in the “Email” section of cPanel to configure e-mail filters. They are “Global e-mail filters” and “E-mail filters”. The difference between these two filters is: the first one configures a global filter that is setup for all e-mails in your cPanel account, the second one allows you to configure filters for every e-mail separately from others.
Сonfigure global e-mail filters must be done in the correspondent section.
Press on the icon and you will get to the page with new filter creation button.
Press it and you will get to the page where it is possible to create a global filter. The custom filter options will be displayed on this page.
“Filter name” – the filter name is necessary to simplify the search in the filters list.
“Rules” – you set a rule when the filter is working.
“Actions” – you set actions that will be done when the rule is triggered.
You may find out the sections descriptions in the following.
There are 2 drop-down lists and a text field that are used to create rules conditions in the “Rules” section .
For example, the rule will be done when “From” field is “[email protected]”. The rule will work when you a receive a letter from “[email protected]”.
Each of the drop-down list has an extensive number of possible values for more flexible configuration of the rule conditions.
All the actions that will be done when the rule is triggered you may specify in this field.
These actions are available in the drop-list.
For example, if you choose “Redirect to e-mail” you will see an additional field. You have to specify an e-mail for redirect there.
You may also specify a chain of rules and (or) conditions that will activate one or several actions.
For example, you may setup a more difficult chain to activate the rule.
Pay attention to “AND” and “OR” options. They describe how to check the conditions of the rule. “And” specifies that both conditions must be true for the rule to match. “OR” specifies that at least one condition must be true for the rule to match.
You may also add several additional actions.
The implementation of the rule will perform two actions (as you may see on the screenshot): the e-mails redirect to a specified mailbox and then the message will be deleted from the current drawer.
To add/delete the rule conditions or actions use “+” and “-” buttons.
When you add conditions or actions press “Create” button. If everything is correct you receive a notification that filter has been added successfully.
There are two buttons to remove or change the filters in the “Gobal e-mail filters” section.
The procedure of the e-mail filter setup is the same as the procedure of the global e-mail filter setup. But it has one difference: you will get to the “E-mail filters” subsection where you have to choose the account (e-mail) and setup the filter.
Press “Filters management” button to get to the filter creation page (the description of it see in the “Global e-mail filters setup”). The procedure of the filter addition is similar.
