Setup a Trash folder in Horde Webmail

If you are using Horde Webmail to delete mail on the server, these are the steps you will need to take before you can remove mail entirely.  By default, Horde does not come with a “Trash” folder so this must be created before you are allowed to delete mail.

1) Login and click on “New Messages”
2) Click on the “Folder Actions” and select “Create Mailbox”
3) Name the new mailbox “Trash”
4) In the same Folder Action dropdown, select “Rebuild folder list”

Next, Go to the Gear Icon in the top menu bar.
Select the link “Deleting and moving messages”
Check the following boxes:
Mark messages as seen when deleting? (Check)
Move deleted messages to your Trash mailbox instead of marking them as deleted in the current mailbox? (Check)

In Trash mailbox dropdown, select “Trash”

Purge Trash how often, select “Daily”

Purge messages in Trash mailbox older than this amount of days

Select your option here. (5)

Now all deleted email will be sent to your trash folder. You can have Horde Delete this automatically if you have a time frame set or you can manually delete them in the interface.

New Spam Blocker Installed

We have just installed a new layer of spam protection for our hosting customers.  Welcome to MagicSpam.
MagicSpam is not a filter but integrates with the mail server and works on the edge or the SMTP layer to reject spam before it enters the server. It is also configured to help stop Trojans and bots with Mail Server Profiling.
Furthermore, it performs best practices and DNSBL (Email Black Hole) checks against all incoming mail.
While all spam cannot be stopped, this extra layer of protection will help eliminate much of the spam that currently makes it to your inbox.
A poll of customers reports dramatic drops in spam as soon as MagicSpam was installed.
