How can I configure Netscape to filter spam with PerfectMail Distributed Filtering?
PerfectMail™ can mark spam messages so that your desktop mail client (e.g. Outlook) can filter your e-mail based on PerfectMail's assessment. This information is stored in the X-Spam-Flag and X-Spam-Level e-mail headers. These headers can be used to filter spam with your e-mail client.
To filter e-mail flagged as spam you need to create Filter Rules. Filter rules can automatically file messages in your "Spam" or "Junk" folder. For sites that are particularly concerned about loosing e-mail, or even for specific users, you can have PerfectMail not reject any e-mail and use these filtering rules to filter messages on your local e-mail client.
The steps for creating filter rules are specific to your e-mail client. We have instructions for creating filter rules for several popular e-mail clients. The steps for other e-mail clients are likely very similar to those presented here.
Netscape 6.2.1 does not allow you to create custom filters, so users of this version are unable to take advantage of the special headers used in their mail client software at this time.
Netscape 4.7.8 allows you to create a custom filter. You can supply the special x-header information to Netscape 4.7.8 by doing the following:
