Email spam filter to keep inboxes clean

What is spam?

Spam is unsolicited bulk messages sent through email for commercial, malicious, or fraudulent purposes. These purposes may cover anything from mass advertising to phishing scams, for example. The reasons for receiving spam can vary: spammers may have gotten hold of your email address without your knowledge, or you may have inadvertently opted-in to a subscription list. Either way, this junk mail is a major nuisance and increases the risk of you not replying to important emails because you overlooked them in the sea of spam.

How do I get rid of spam emails?

Luckily, there’s a way to rid your inbox of these annoying junk mails: a spam filter for your email account! A spam filter is a program used to detect unwanted emails and prevents them from entering your inbox. No more sifting through all your emails and manually deleting all the trash. This spam filter does it for you, leaving your inbox full of emails you actually want to read and answer, and at the same time protecting you from dangerous malware that may infiltrate your computer and read sensitive information if successful.

How you can help improve GMX’s spam filter

We're constantly working on optimizing our spam filter for you by learning what new criteria classifies an email as spam. Now, you can help by letting us analyze the emails you move from your inbox to the spam folder, and vice versa. This will let us detect patterns to help our system sort emails more accurately in the future. You can easily revoke your permission at any time under your 'Account Settings'. Rest assured that our software will solely scan emails that have been manually moved by you to or from your spam folder. This means that all other incoming and outgoing messages will remain untouched and completely private.

Please keep in mind: The more users take part, the greater the improvement will be! Find out how you can contribute in the GMX Help Center.
