3. Fill in a name for the filter such as Spam Filter or whatever you wish to call the new filter. Next, make sure Match any of the following is selected. Use the drop down boxes below that to create a filter that says Subject contains SPAM. You will have to type in the word SPAM in uppercase letters in the box on the right. Note that we use this keyword because Active Web Hosting's spam filtering will autotmatically put the word "SPAM" in the subject line of any mail regarded as spam. You can use other keywords as well. For more information on keywords to use in your filters, please see Spam Keywords To Add To Your Filter Lists. Finally, click on the New Folder button.
