(Home >> Email >> Email Filters)

Overview

This interface allows you to filter the email for each email account in your domain.

Important:

We strongly recommend that you use multiple, simple filters instead of a single large filter. Exim, the server's mail transfer agent, handles many small rules more efficiently than a single large rule.
