Turn off or turn on spam filtering

With the increase in usage of email, many users receive a number of unwanted and unsolicited commercial email messages known as spam. Not only does spam make it difficult to identify valid email messages, but some spam contains offensive messages and images.

To control these spam mails you can use the spam filtering. By default, spam protection remains active. If for any reason you want to disable it, you can turn it off from within the program itself.

Turning off Norton AntiSpam increases your exposure to receive unsolicited email messages.

Turn off or turn on spam filtering

  1. In the Norton product main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click AntiSpam.

  3. On the Filter tab, in the AntiSpam row, move the On/Off switch to Off or On.

  4. If you turn spam filtering off, do the following:

    • In the Security Request window, in the Select the duration drop-down list, select the amount of time that you want to turn off spam filtering.

  5. Click Apply.

  6. Click OK.

  7. In the Settings window, click Close.
