Configure other email programs

General instructions for configuring your email program.

  • You must turn off automatic mail checks in your email program. Otherwise, your email program could download spam before Spamfire has a chance to delete it. (If you want automatic checks, set them up in Spamfire.)

  • After Spamfire has deleted email from your account, you must check your mail manually in your regular email program. Or, you may be able to create or install a custom AppleScript that will do this for you automatically.
