Everyone gets a significant number of spam emails which are saved in a different folder named as Spam in their email account. Those emails are useless and they unnecessarily reduce the free space(1024 MB) given by Google. Again if you share your email address publicly or subscribe to any newsletter, the probability of spamming in your email account increases.
That is why you should clear your spam box to regain the space. Despite the fact that the spam emails reduces the disk space at Gmail account, users ignore the task of deleting them regularly because deleting the spams manually becomes exhausting. The best way to keep clean your email account is automatically delete the spams from the Spam box so that they can never stay at your account.
Here are the simple steps to follow in order to delete the spams automatically from your email account.
Delete Spams Automatically from Gmail
1. Sign-in to your Gmail account with your username and password.
2. Click on “Mail Settings” link from the top-right corner of your account page.
3. Head to the Filter tab to create a new filter then click on “Create a new folder”.
4. At the “Has the words” box, put is:spam and click Next Step.
5. Once you click on the Next Step button, a warning message appears. Simply, ignore this warning and click on OK.
6. Now check into the box Delete it. You can also apply this filter on the existing spam emails in your account by selecting the appropriate option.
7. Finally, click on Create Filter.
Once you configure and create the filter properly, all the incoming mails which are flagged as spam will be automatically deleted. I applied this method in my Gmail account and I am happy that no spam email resides at my Gmail account.
Though, I have described the process for Gmail account, you can apply this any other email provider following the similar procedure.
One drawback of creating this filter is that every incoming mail that is flagged as spam will be deleted. Some time Gmail flags an incoming mail as spam by mistake. In such case, you can lose your important mails before you read them.
Tip: Verify Fake or Invalid Email Addresses.
