Cactus Spam Filter for IncrediMail

By default, Cactus Spam Filter runs seamlessly with IncrediMail, no additional settings in your e-mail client are required. Just download and install our spam killer and it will immediately protect your IncrediMail inbox.

Moving spam e-mail to a special IncrediMail junk folder

E-mails classified as spam will get a tagged subject line. The tag is *** CACTUS SPAM *** and can be used to automatically move such e-mail into a junk folder. To do this you simply will have to add a message rule in IncrediMail. Here is a step-by-step guide.

NOTE: there is a space between the asterix and ‘CACTUS SPAM’ (***CACTUS SPAM***) and it’s important that you use them.

1. Start IncrediMail.
2. In the menu, select ‘Tools->Message Rules’.
3. Click on ‘Add’.
4. Select ‘if Subject line contains’ and type *** CACTUS SPAM *** in the right field.
5. Select ‘then Move it to’ and click ‘…’ to select the junk folder.
6. Click ‘Ok’.
7. Click ‘Close’.

Training Cactus Spam Filter with e-mails from IncrediMail

Cactus Spam Filter offers a feature that will train your filter quickly, instead of having to guide it for every incoming e-mail. If you already have a bunch of good and spam e-mails in your IncrediMail e-mail client, you can directly train the filter with these e-mails. IncrediMail itself doesn’t support any export functionality, but don’t worry, the same company has released an exporter, IncrediConvert, which allows IncrediMail e-mails to be exported to .eml format, which is just perfect!
