Free Spam Filtering

The Optus Dial-up Internet Spam Filter has been designed to protect you and your family from receiving spam or unsolicited commercial email.
The spam filter will check your email as it arrives in your Optus mailbox. If the email is identified as looking like spam, then the email will be moved to a separate folder.

It's very simple to use. To activate or deactivate the Spam Filter you need only login to the Spam Filtering page using your Optus Dial-up Internet username and password, then agree to the terms.

When activated, email that you receive is automatically filtered to remove as much spam as possible before it gets to your inbox.

The mail that has been filtered is placed in a Spam folder, which you will find listed with your other mail folders in Webmail. If you wish, you can view the contents of your Spam folder and shift through the contents to ensure the filtering process has not moved a non-spam message there inadvertantly. Mail in your Spam folder will be automatically emptied after 14 days.
