Protecting Your Mailbox From Spam (Free Anti-Spam)

To enable spam filtering for a mailbox using the Free anti-spam system:

  1. Login to your account via https://accounts.dynamicnet.net/clientarea.php and navigate to Services as shown here and then click your hosting plan as shown here. You can then click the "Open Control panel" button as shown here
  2. Once logged in - if you are subscribed to several hosting packages and have access to several webspaces associated with your account, in the Subscription menu at the top of the screen, select the required webspace.
  3. Navigate to the Mail tab (shown here) > click the email address to set spam filtering > then click the Spam Filter tab.
  4. Select the checkbox Switch on spam filtering for this email address as shown here
  5. Specify what to do with messages classified as spam.
    • If you want to filter mail with the software on your local computer, select the option Mark spam messages by adding the following text to message subject, and then specify how spam filter should mark the messages recognized as spam. "X-Spam-Flag: YES" and "X-Spam-Status: Yes" headers are added to the message source by default, and if you want, the spam filter will also add a specific text string to the beginning of the subject line and to the message body.
      Note: If using POP email (stores email on your devices/PC) in your mail client, you can create a "filter" in your mail client to automatically move messages containing for example ***SPAM*** in the subject line into your Junk folder or another specified folder for you to review at a later time.
      Tip: In the "Mark spam messages by adding the following text to message subject" field you enter ***SPAM***_SCORE_ as shown here it will allow you to adjust your
      Spam filter sensitivity more accurately by reviewing the messages marked as spam and their scores.
    • If you are sure/confirmed that your spam filter is accurate over time, you may want to set the filter to automatically delete all incoming messages recognized as spam. To do this, select the option Delete all spam messages.
    • If you are accessing your mailbox over IMAP protocol and want the spam filter to move all messages considered spam to the IMAP folder called Spam, select the option Move spam to the Spam folder.
      Note: Because all messages are automatically removed from the Spam folder after 30 days, you will need to review the contents of the Spam folder on a regular basis to make sure you do not miss any important messages, and move all non-spam messages back to the Inbox folder.

      ***** When the option Move spam to the Spam folder is selected, you can train the spam filter and improve its accuracy by moving spam messages from Inbox to Spam, and non-spam messages from Spam to Inbox.

  6. If you want to adjust spam filter sensitivity, click Show Advanced Settings as shown here, and type a number of points that a message must score to be considered spam.

    SpamAssassin performs a number of different tests on contents and subject line of each message. As a result, each message scores a number of points. The higher the number, the more likely a message is spam. For example, a message containing the text string "BUY AT LOW PRICE!!!" in subject line and message body scores 8.3 points. By default, the filter sensitivity is set so that all messages that score 7 or more points are classified as spam.

    • If you receive lots of spam messages with the current setting, to make filter more sensitive, try setting a lesser value in the Spam filter sensitivity box; for example, 6.
    • If you are missing your emails because your spam filter thinks they are junk, try adjusting the filter sensitivity by setting a higher value in the Spam filter sensitivity box.

      Note: To further improve spam filter accuracy, you may want to train your spam filter on email messages you receive, as described further in this section.

  7. If you want to be sure that you will not miss email from specific senders, type email addresses or domain names into the White list field.

    Place each address in one row, or separate addresses with a coma, a colon, or a white space. You can use an asterisk (*) as a substitute for a number of letters, and question mark (?) as a substitute for a single letter.
    For example: address@mycompany.com, address@mycompany.com, *@mycompany.com. Specifying *@mycompany.com will add to the white list all email addresses that are under the mycompany.com mail domain.

  8. If you do not want to receive email from specific domains or individual senders, type email addresses or domain names into the Black list field.

    Place each address in one row, or separate addresses with a coma, a colon, or a white space. You can use an asterisk (*) as a substitute for a number of letters, and question mark (?) as a substitute for a single letter.
    For example: address@spammers.net, user?@spammers.net, *@spammers.net. Specifying *@spammers.net will block the entire mail domain spammers.net.

  9. After you have completed your settings - Click the button

You can improve accuracy of spam detection if SpamAssassin spam filter on the server is switched on for your account and you are accessing your mailbox over IMAP protocol (stores all mail on the server) and moving messages to the Spam folder.

To improve accuracy of spam detection if you utilize POP (stores mail on your devices) using Webmail :

  1. Access your mailbox with webmail use https://webmail.dynamicnet.net or http://webmail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain with your actuall domain name) and login using your email address and the password of the email address.
  2. Review the messages in your Inbox folder. Move all spam messages to the Spam folder. This will make the SpamAssassin spam filter recognize spam more efficiently.
