Thunderbird Filters

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Stanley Eisen, Aug 24, 2007.

  1. I want to permanently filter all that conspiracy crap that gets
    crossposted to every newsgroup every few months.

    Will this work? :

    Advanced Features / Manage Message Filters

    New filter - sender contains "m15*" (without quotes) / delete message.

    .... I'm assuming a wildcard like that works? From memory that guy
    changes his username but it always seems to contain m15 in it.

    sorry, but wildcards don't work. Create one with sender
    contains m15, and subject contains m15.
