How to manage email filters in cPanel

Here's how you can manage email filters in cPanel:

Log in to your cPanel account.

In the "Email" section, click on the "Email Filters" icon.

This will open the Email Filters interface, where you can create, edit, or delete email filters.

To create a new email filter, click on the "Create a New Filter" button.

In the "Create a New Filter" page, you can set up the following options:
• Filter Name: Give a descriptive name to your filter.
• Filter Type: Choose whether you want to filter incoming or outgoing emails.
• Rules: Define the rules for your filter. You can set rules based on the email's sender, recipient, subject, body, or header.
• Actions: Specify the action you want to take when the filter rules are met. You can choose to discard the email, forward it to another address, or deliver it to a specific folder.

After configuring the filter settings, click on the "Create Filter" button to save the new filter.

To edit an existing filter, click on the filter name in the Email Filters interface, and make the desired changes.

To delete a filter, click on the checkbox next to the filter name, and then click on the "Delete" button at the bottom of the page.

You can also prioritize your filters by dragging and dropping them into the desired order. Filters are applied in the order they appear in the list.

Once you've set up your email filters, incoming and outgoing emails will be processed according to the defined rules.

It's important to note that email filters can be powerful tools, but they should be configured carefully to avoid unintended consequences, such as accidentally filtering out important emails.
