It is possible to improve the accuracy of spam detection if SpamAssassin spam filter on the server is switched on for an account and access is performed using IMAP protocol. To improve the accuracy of spam detection:
- Access your mailbox with webmail or a mail client program on your computer.
- Review the messages in your Inbox folder.
- Move all spam messages to the Spam folder. This will make the SpamAssassin spam filter recognize spam more efficiently.
