If you have enabled the Antispam protection on your hosting account using the second method ( mark SPAM messages with ***SPAM*** in the subject ), you should create a filter on your mail client in order to automatically discard SPAM messages.

In this guide we explain how to create a message filter on Thunderbird.

How to create a filter

1 - Create a new folder

You will have to create a new folder to store all the SPAM. To create a new folder right click on the name of your configured email account and choose New folder.
