IncrediMail includes a sophisticated subscription service that filters mail without you having to spend another thought or click on all the junk (more or less). However, even without a subscription to JunkFilter Plus, you can turn your IncrediMail Inbox into a lean and spam-free place.

Using IncrediMail's own filtering engine, you can send all mail from senders you have not yet approved to the Junk Mail folder. Reviewing the messages in this folder, you can then easily add new senders to your list of approved addresses.

Filter Mail from Unknown Senders to the Junk Folder as Spam

To send mail from senders you have not approved to the junk folder in IncrediMail automatically:

  • Click Add.
  • Make sure the filter reads "If Received from unapproved sender then Move it to."
  • Click the ... button.
  • Highlight the Junk Mail folder.
  • Click OK.
  • Click OK again.
  • Click Close.
