When someone sends you an email for the first time, Box Trapper responds back asking them to reply to prove they're not a spammer or bot. People who reply will be automatically whitelisted and never have to do it again. The concept relies on the fact that spammers and bots will not reply to the email BoxTrapper sends and therefore can be determined as spam. You can also manually add any addresses of people you already correspond with (your address book in your mail client is a good place to start) to the whitelist, so you don't have to bother them with getting approved. Pay attention to the format of the addresses listed above the whitelist box to avoid errors.
The following guides will help you learn how to use BoxTrapper to prevent the amount of spam you receive in your Inbox.
