Use the BoxTrapper interface to protect your inbox from spam. BoxTrapper requires all email senders who are not on your whitelist to reply to a verification email before you can receive their messages.
(Home >> Email >> BoxTrapper)
BoxTrapper filters spam from your inbox through challenge-response verification. When an account with BoxTrapper enabled receives an email, BoxTrapper automatically sends a verification email in response. The sender must complete the verification process before the email can pass to your inbox. If the sender does not verify the email, the verification fails and BoxTrapper never clears the message for delivery. After a period of time, the system automatically deletes the spam.
