How to Test your Email Filters

On the main Email Filter Screen, you will see an option to “Test Filter.” You will see a preset simple email message that you can modify to test your any of your Filters.

In my example below, I set a filter to delete any emails from “someone [AT] spam [DOT] com.”

Step 1: Add example email that you want to test

  • Add an example email that you want to test.
  • Click Test Filter

In this example, I added “someone [AT] spam [DOT] com” to the From section. As I want to delete all of these emails, the result should come back as matched.


Step 2: See whether the email matched any of your Mail Filters

  • It shows a match.

You may then want to test emails that should not get matched to ensure it does not match emails that it is not supposed to.
