The Schedule tab is where you can control how and when Spamfire receives
and filters email messages. Info
- Filter Schedule:
- If you want Spamfire to filter your email on a recurring schedule,
choose a schedule from the Filter Schedule popup menu.
- Check Start filtering when launched if you want Spamfire
to start filtering spam whenever it is launched.
- After Spamfire finishes filtering your email, it can:
- Run a script to open your
favorite email program and retrieve the remaining good messages.
- If you check Only if good messages were found, Spamfire
will run the script only if at least one new, good message was found
on the server. Uncheck this box if you want Spamfire to run the
script every time it finishes filtering, regardless of what it found
on the server.
- Quit. This can be handy if you want to keep Spamfire
closed and launch it only when you want to filter spam. To prevent
Spamfire from quitting automatically, hold the Escape key down while
- You can keep the Spam List clean automatically by choosing a schedule
from the Discard saved spam popup menu. If you check Discard
the obvious stuff sooner, Spamfire will delete certain messages even more quickly than the schedule that you specify in the popup menu. "Obvious stuff" means any message that is a recognized sender (spammer or friend) or which you have manually processed by reporting it, bouncing it or rescuing it.
