  • Your Message Center

    Your Message Center - A fine and handy place. Even a novice user can "set, adjust, manage and change" email filters!

    "What are email filters?"
    Email filters are tools that enable you to "strain" out unwanted emails (advertisements, great offers, junk mails, sexually explicit email, etc.), and still receive the emails you want from friends, family, co-workers and others. Your Message Center blocks virtually ALL VIRUS INFECTED emails. This Message Center is included with your BMI email address, at no additional charge to you.

    Perhaps you did not know it was there, or maybe you don't know how to use it? If you have an email address, you already have your own personal Message Center To view it, type in your BMI email address, password, and click on "Login". You can also access your message center at any time, by clicking on the "quarantine" link at the top left side of the BMI Homepage

    From your Messge Center you can:
    • List approved senders (people from whom you always want email)
    • Block senders (people from whom you NEVER want email)
    • Increase or decrease the intensity of a filter by category. These default to a lenient setting when your account is set up, so you may want to bump them up.
    • View emails that were filtered out. You can click on them to read, have them delievered to your inbox, or just let them stay there. They are deleted after 10 days with no action on your part.
    • See any messages that are quarantined. You cannot open these, as they contain a virus and have been securely quarantined.
    • Turn-off all filtering if you do not wish to have this service

    On the first page, you will see all of the emails that we filtered out BEFORE they filled your Inbox. You can also see the "quarantined" virus infected messges. To adjust your email filters on what gets blocked and what doesn't, just click on "junk email settings" at the top of the page. From there you can adjust your filters higher or lower, by category, or block and approve senders. Adding email addresses to the "approved senders" list will allow them to always get through the filter unless the message is infected with a virus...we will always block viruses regardless of who they are from. Once you have adjusted your setttings, save them by clicking on "save settings".

    This is just one of the many ways BMI is here to serve you. We hope you find this service of value and easy to use. If you have any questions, or need assistance, please do not hesitate to give us a call...we love to hear from you!
