    1414The first question to ask yourself if you are getting too much spam is: are you getting too much spam that is accurately being identified by May First/People Link? Or, are you getting too much spam that is not being identified by May First/People Link.

    16 If the spam ''is'' being properly identified, then our servers are doing the right thing and now it's your turn to tell your email program to filter messages that have been properly identified by May First/People Link into a spam folder. By filtering your messages into a spam filter, you can always look to make sure no mistakes were made about what is spam. For directions on setting up spam filters, please see our [wiki:sa_filter_spam faq on filtering email for spam].

    1818If the spam is ''not'' being properly identified, then please open a support ticket and let us know. Keep in mind that no spam detection system is perfect. Depending on how much email you typically get, you can expect to see one or two spam messages squeak by per day. If you are getting a lot more than that, please let us know.
