This interface allows you to filter the email for each email account in your domain.
An email filter allows you to set a rule for incoming messages (for example, a message from desired sender). If a message matches that rule, then the system can automatically perform an action on that message (for example, deleting the message).
We strongly recommend that you use multiple, simple filters instead of a single large filter. Exim, the server’s mail transfer agent, handles many small rules more efficiently than a single large rule.
