: : One protection method is to create a message rule in Outlook Express
: : as follows;
: : Go to Tools>Message Rules>Mail>New
: : In the top box) Check "Where the From Line Contains People" and
: : "Where the
: : Message has an Attachment"
: : In the center box) Check "Mark as Read" and "Delete it" and "Stop
: : Processing
: : More Rules"
: : In the bottom box) Click on "Contains People" (in blue) and add
: : "microsoft.com"
: : (no quotes).
: : Do not use "Delete from server" since OE has no way of knowing if
: : there is
: : an
: : attachment until it arrives in your inbox.
: : If you use any other rules which sort mail into different folders or
: : otherwise
: : move the mail from the Inbox, then it is imperative that the above
: : rule be
: : moved
: : to the top of the rules list.
