Follow the step-by-step instructions below to create email filters in your cPanel interface.
Upon logging in to cPanel, scroll down to the Email section. Look for the Email Filters icon, which is situated within this section. Click on the icon to proceed with the email filter setup.
In the Email Filters interface, you will find a comprehensive list of your email accounts. Choose the specific email account you wish to create the filter by clicking on the “Manage Filters” button adjacent to it.
Once you access the filter management page of the chosen email account, locate the “Create a New Filter” button and click on it. This button will initiate the creation process for your new email filter.
A form will appear, allowing you to define the filter rules. Begin by providing a descriptive name for your filter in the “Filter Name” field, enabling easy identification in the future. Within the “Rules” section, you can specify the conditions that incoming emails must satisfy for the filter to activate. For instance, you may choose to filter emails based on the sender’s address, subject, or specific keywords present in the email body.
Having established the filter criteria, determine the desired actions the filter should take on the matched emails. In the “Actions” section, select options such as “Discard” to delete the email, “Redirect to Email” for forwarding, or “Pipe to a Program” for custom processing.
After configuring the filter rules and actions, click on the “Create” button to preserve the filter settings. At this point, the filter will become active for the selected email account, processing incoming emails accordingly.
