Adding Filters (Optional)
In certain instances, you may consider applying filters to your mail routing configuration to control which emails will be handed off to the Email to Case Premium email service. For example, some Email to Case Premium customers may want only inbound emails which are tied to existing cases to be processed, while preventing routing for new emails which are not associated with an existing case record. (This can be done by looking specifically for the presence of the Case Thread Id which starts with "[ ref:" in the Subject or Body of the email message).
To apply filters, please review the steps outlined below.
Mail server configuration may be specific to your business requirements. We recommend you consult with your IT provider or IT department when making any changes to your server configuration.
