Using Filters to Manage Your Email

Overview

Filters may assist you in managing your email in your WebMail account. Establishing filters may be especially helpful on an IMAP account, where you can view all account information (including) folders on the device using the account. If the device you are using to view your email is not set up as IMAP, you would need to log into your WebMail account to view all folders.

These steps demonstrate how to set up a filter. This example creates a filter to Move an email from support@gci.net to a folder named Notes.
