    Note2 icon.png Note:
    • Of course if your e-mail client supports keyword filtering (most modern mail clients do now days) then you can apply filters there as well. Since our filters operate on the server side they will be applied before any local filtering done by your mail client software.
    • Forwarding only addresses (aliases) cannot process keyword filters (or junk mail filtering either).
    • If you have our Anti-spam filtering enabled for your domain that is processed before keyword filtering.


Configure your account to immediately send an automatic response to all messages sent to any of your email addresses. Keep in mind that only one message per day, per sender will be sent.
