Stop spam by headers

    I have IHateSpam Outlook Express 5. It blocks some of my spam and the other
    I have to create rules in Outlook Express manually. I can block all of my
    spam except those stock scams (sample of those included). The message body
    is an image of some sort, the sender name and email are random, and the
    subject is usually not a word or a random word.

    I cannot make rules to stop this so is there a way to (or program) that
    would stop messages by the headers? That would stop ALL of my spam.


    Update: I can't send attachments for whatever reason



    Here is the the headers of the message:

    It has that content mime type of an image or whatever. I can't block the
    images.
    Also, all of my incoming email that are SPAM and If I can't block it are
    blocked by
    yahoo. So could I have it deleting all messages that have
    "X-YahooFilteredBulk: 84.157.207.135"

    You configure OE to not automatically send or receive emails at start-up
    or on a timed basis, which forces you to use the SEND/REVC button to
    manually Send (Email held in OutBox and you send form there) and to
    receive emails (pulling them to the Inbox).

    Then you use something like Mailwasher (30 trial period) to filter the
    emails at the POP3 server and delete any you don't want at the POP3
    server and pull any that you do want to the Inbox by using the SEND/RECV
    button.

    You should ignore/disable the Bounce feature on MW as it's useless if
    you use MW.

    Has nothing to do with my message at all. I want it to automaticly
    send/recv. So that doesn't matter

    No, I am not off topic and there is nothing you can do to stop spam
    traffic by headers with OE. You may be able to use something like
    Mailwasher to stop the spam traffic at the pop3 server and NOT pull it
    to OE in the first place by using filtering rules to kill it at the POP3
    server.

    It's a post you're talking about and not a *message*.

    I can't help it if you don't understand not to allow the spam traffic to
    reach the machine by taking OE out of its automatic sending and
    receiving of emails.

    If you take the control and use a spam filter by setting rules by
    headers or using the spam black list servers to control it at the POP3
    server instead of letting it reach the machine and OE, then you don't
    understand. You can certainly make more powerful rules with Mailwasher
    than OE.

    Other than that, use Outlook and not Outlook Express if you need more
    powerful filtering rules.

    You're not setting there with an MS Exchange Server.

    To save you from picking thru lots of emails to find spam,
    what I did was I created a MAIL folder in my Local Folders.
    Since most of my friendly email is addressed TO me,
    and most spam is not, I created a rule to move anything
    addressed TO me ( not cc, bcc) from my Inbox to the MAIL folder. What is
    left in the Inbox is mostly spam , I move anything that isn't spam to
    MAIL, and I then do a select all - delete for the inbox. I have 5 email
    accounts and I found that it takes a few seconds this way rather than
    picking thru it one by one.

    (not to confuse the issue, but for each of my accounts can have the same
    rule. I created a MAIL folder -name1, name2 etc, so incoming mail could
    still be sorted by account )
