Mail Configuration

  • Go to Tools > Settings…
  • For each mail account under Mail Accounts, click on the account name and click Edit. Go to the Receiving Mail pane. Change the host to, and the username to host:username. For example, if the host is, and the username is jrbobdobbs, then the new host will be, and the new username will be When this is complete, click OK.
  • The first time you retrieve mail from your updated accounts, you will be prompted for your mail password again.

This worked under Evolution v1.4.0 - YMMV.

Mail Filters Configuration

  • Select Tools > Filters…
  • Make sure Incoming is selected, and press Add
  • Name the rule
  • Select Specific Header for the criteria
  • Enter X-Text-Classification in the box next to Specific Header (note there is no ':' after X-Text-Classification)
  • Select Contains
  • Enter spam in the box next to Contains
  • Choose your action (I chose Delete which puts it into Trash).
  • Save the rule.

That should work. Crtl+Y executes the rule against current messages if you want to test it.
