For example, if your domain is yourdomain.co.uk, then you can create user@yourdomain.co.uk to be forwarded to user1@otheremail.isp.co.uk. To do this, enter “user” under the ‘Alias’ column and the complete email address “user1@otheremail.isp.co.uk” under the ‘Redirect to’ column.

For additional email forwards, click the Add button under the last email forward you have put in place.
Please note – line 1 in the email forwarding section (with alias “Catch-all“) is the default forwarding address, which is a catch-all for all mail sent to the domain name that is not governed by the aliases specified in lines 2-20. To help cut down on spam email you can set your catch-all to nospam@easily.co.uk.

How do I adjust my spam filter settings?

Easily has introduced spam filtering functionality, at no additional charge, for all customers using email forwarding and EasilyMail email accounts, which will allow you to manage the level of spam you receive into your inbox.

If spam filtering is enabled for a domain name, our system will analyse each incoming email and assign it a score based on a number of parameters that help to identify whether or not the email should be identified as spam. If an email scores above the sensitivity setting then it is identified as spam and will not be delivered to your mailbox.

The sensitivity setting range is from 1.0 to 15.0. The recommended setting is 5.0.

– a lower sensitivity setting will result in more email being tagged as spam and may therefore result in legitimate email being blocked.
– a higher sensitivity setting will result in less email being tagged as spam and may therefore allow more spam to get through but should not block any legitimate email.

The spam filtering functionality is accessed through the Control Panel. Click on (D) to administer your domain names then (E) to administer email next to the domain name to be managed. The current Spam filtering settings will then be displayed below the email forwarding settings, as follows:

Spam filter settings for domainname: 5.0

how do i adjust my spam filter settings

The number indicates the sensitivity setting that is current for that domain name. If the spam filtering is disabled, it will display “Off”. To enable spam filtering or to modify the sensitivity setting, click on the “Modify” button.
