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. Future versions of Spamfire for Windows will include the ability to trigger an automatic mail check in your email program.
