Cactus Spam Filter for Pegasus Mail

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

Moving spam e-mail to a special Pegasus Mail 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 Pegasus Mail. 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 Pegasus Mail.
2. In the menu, select ‘Tools->Mail Filtering Rules->Edit New Mail Filtering Rules->Rules Applied when folder is open’.
3. Click on ‘Add Rule’.
4. Click on ‘Headers’.
5. Select ‘subject’.
6. Set ‘Contains this text’ to *** CACTUS SPAM ***.
7. Set the action to ‘Move’.
8. Click on ‘ Set’ and select a folder to where all spam will go.
9. Click ‘Ok’.
