Protecting Email Inbox With The Help Of Anti-Junk Email Software

Sometimes, we tend to get emails from unknown people and at the same time we might get a number of emails from some spam email ID, looking to access our information. This is where anti-junk email software comes into picture. In short, it filters out the emails which we like to read and the ones with which we want to avoid any communication of any sorts.

Protecting Email Inbox With The Help Of Anti-Junk Email Software

The anti-junk software or anti-spam suite is normally provided by the email service provider as well as by email clients such as Mozilla Thunderbird. Email service providers such as Yahoo!, Fastmail, GMX, and Google have individual spam protection tools that automatically classifies and segregates which are legit emails and which are spam. But sometimes, a legit email message may be incorrectly classified as spam.

This happens most of the time if the sender does not exist on your address book. So, in case one of your emails went to the spam folder and you know it is from a trusted sender or a friend, you should add his or her email address to your address book. This is the only way to correct the misidentification of email messages.

In Mozilla Thunderbird email client, if you are using one, its spam protection feature can be thought aside from its ability to identify which messages are good and which are spam. As with my experience with this email client, if the sender of the email message is not in your address book, it will go straight to the spam folder.

The solution is the same, you need to add the sender to your address book and the next time it receives a message coming from the same sender it will now go to your inbox since it can now be identified in your address book.
