Content filter

You can use the content filter to easily block email messages which contain certain subjects or text.

Simply enter the keywords and expressions to which the G DATA software should react under Search criterion. It is possible to use the AND and OR logical operators to link text components with one another.

Under Search scope you can now enter those elements of an email message that the software should search for the defined terms. The header is the part of an email message that, among other things, contains the email address of the sender and the recipient, the subject line, information on the programs and protocols used, and the date sent. If you have, for instance, activated Subject as the search area, only the content of the subject line will be checked, and no other information contained in the header. If you select Mail text as the search scope, you have the additional option of limiting the search scope to pure text emails, or extending the search to text in HTML emails (HTML text).

By checking Embedded mails you can define whether the content filter search should also cover email messages included as attachments in received messages.
Under Reaction you can determine what is to be done with emails identified as spam by the G DATA software. Using Reject mail means the email in question will not even be accepted by your email program.

If you check the box for Insert warning in mail subject and text you can prefix the actual text in the subject line with a warning (prefix in subject line), e.g. Spam or Warning. You can also enter text to be placed above the actual email text in the event of suspected spam (Message in text).

If you use Microsoft Outlook (caution: not to be confused with Outlook Express or Outlook Mail), you also have the option of moving emails containing suspected spam to a fully customizable folder in your mailbox (Move mail to folder). You can create this folder directly via the G DATA software by defining the corresponding folder under Folder name.
