In this tutorial, you will learn how to create filters for incoming emails.
This allows emails to be moved directly to the spam folder or to a specified destination folder.
If you receive a lot of emails every day, it can be advantageous to filter the emails from your inbox automatically, to get a better overview.
Log in to www.checkdomain.net/en, top right of your webmail account.
Enter your e-mail address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and the corresponding password in the login screen.
Confirm your entries by clicking on the "Login" button.
In the webmail, click on the "Settings" button at the top right.
If you want to assign incoming e-mails to certain folders, you may have to first create the corresponding folders for archiving.
Instructions on how to create additional folders can be found here.
Select "Filter" from the left menu.
In the list for the filters, click on the "+" button at the bottom left to create a new filter.
Now enter the desired name of the filter in the corresponding text field.
Then select what you want the e-mails to be filtered by. To do this, first specify whether the filter should be must fulfill all conditions, only one of several conditions, or no condition at all.
For example, you can link a specific sender to the filter, as in our example.
In the text field on the right side, enter the sender or a term from the subject line or the e-mail after which the filtering is to take place.
Once this has been specified, select what should happen to the respective e-mails.
In our example, the e-mails of the sender "email@example.com" should be placed in the previously created folder "Hans" can be moved.
In the right pull-down menu, select the folder to which the received e-mails will be moved or whether these should be deleted directly.
Confirm your entries at the end by clicking on the "Save" button.
The filter is directly active and is used.
