Besides adding SPAM to the subject? Or can it be moved to trash folder without displaying 'you have new mail'?

1) Log in to your Roadfly mail account at <a href="http://mail.roadfly.com/">mail.roadfly.com</a>.

1a) Click on the small "Add" link right next to the word "Folders" near the top left of the page.

1b) Type in "spam" (without the quotes) in the "Mailbox name" field, select "Mailbox" under the "Mailbox type" field, and click on the "Create" button. Now you have a spam folder to put your spam messages in. You should still check them to make sure no legitimate emails accidentally got classified as spam. You will need to delete them periodically or your mailbox will exceed its quota.

2) Click on the "Filters" button near the top left.

3) Look for the "Rule name" edit field. Type in some word of your choice like "myspamrule" and click the "Create" button under it.

4) That rule will appear at the top of the page. It will have an "Edit Rule" link somewhere to the right of it. Click on that.

5) Under "Data", select "Subject".

6) Under "Operation", select "is"

7) Under Parameter, type in "SPAM*" without the quotes and without any extra spaces or anything. Now you have just told this rule to select messages whose subject starts with SPAM followed by anything else.

8) Under Action, select "Store in"

9) Under Parameters (the big box next to Action), type in "spam" in all lower case without the quotes.

10) Click on the "Update" button at the top of the page.

11) Another "Action" box will appear under the one you already filled in. Change this one to "Discard". Click "Update" again.


That's it. Basically what this does is


IF the subject starts with SPAM followed by any other characters
THEN
1) put a copy of the message in your newly-created spam folder
2) discard the original message from your inbox

We do NOT recommend automatically discarding all messages with "SPAM" in the subject without screening them through a "spam" folder first. No spam filter is 100% accurate, and sometimes messages can be classified wrong, so you should always periodically check your "spam" messages for any that might be real mail. Then, delete all the spam ones to keep your mailbox from filling up.
