Email - Best Practices in Managing Junk Email or SPAM

See DoIT links for managing junk mail, spam, and phishing attempts

You might want to try the Clutter filter  to help reduce your spam.  You may need to enable the clutter filter:

You need to do this through the web : https://email.wisc.edu

  • go into your email
  • click the gear icon upper right
  • go down to “your app settings” and choose Mail
  • under “automatic processing” you will find the clutter option
  • make sure there is a check in the box “separate items identified as clutter.”

Any spam in your inbox, move to clutter. This will start to train your clutter filter.   For awhile, you should scan the clutter folder for mail that should not be there. If you find something, move it to your inbox. After a few weeks, your clutter filter should be trained to spot a good amount of your spam.

Hope it helps!
