Evolution: Managing Spam/Creating New Filter Rules


Evolution allows the user to filter mail by dividing it into different folders, automatically deleting it, highlighting it, or other actions based on criteria-specific information in the e-mail. This can be useful if you want certain emails to go directly to your spam or junk folder.
