Using the Mail Filter you can select which members you'll hear from. You can filter out messages from users without photos and profiles, or users that don't fit various other profile criteria. If a user tries to contact you but you have Filtered them out, you won't see their mail in your Inbox and you won't get an email notification about their message.

To manage your Mail Filter settings, you can do the following:

  • Log into the site.
  • Click on "Messages" on the menu.
  • Check the "Conversation Filter" checkbox to toggle your Mail Filter on and off. 
  • To manage specific filter options, click on "Edit Filter".
  • On the "Edit Filter" page, check the options you want to change, and then click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

If you have been sent any messages that you have Filtered out, you can still access these if you want to! On the "Messages" page, you'll see a counter next to the "Conversation Filter" option showing you whether you've received anything that goes outside your selection criteria. Toggle the Conversation Filter off, and then you'll be able to access these messages in your Inbox.
