    If that is what you have, I wouldn't be abusing myself like that were I
    you.....

    Still, what you do to your "Little Lloyd" or "Jones Joytoy" is up to you I
    guess.

    I never get spam missed in with my good mail...and I have only one
    filter set up to do this.

    Quite easy, actually.

    HTML servers are even easier...but take more effort initially.


    Have a nice week...

    First, decide where you want to put the spam mail that's gonna come
    in, Sue. I've created a special folder for it.

    Then set up a filter in OE...to dump all mail into that folder sent to
    you from folks who are NOT in your address book. All mail sent to
    you...or sent to anyone else that happens to go to you...who are NOT
    in your address book will go into that folder.

    You can also set up the filter to delete that mail from the
    server...instead of download it to your computer. But I elect not to
    do that...for various reasons.

    Don't forget to put everybody in your address book from whom you might
    get mail...NOT necessarily people to whom you will write. For
    instance, include in your address book monthly ebills, newsletter
    announcements, etc.

    The filter is 99.9% effective.

    Good luck.


    Have a nice week...

    So if you have 841 people in your address book, sit there and put 841
    different addresses in one rule? Get Mailwasher free version. Get Spamkiller
    (which, incidentally, has that one built in for not accepting messages from
    people NOT in your address book) or get some other anti spam prog. MUCH
    easier!!
    One being that if a friend changes their email address and attempts to tell
    you that IN email, they wont get to you and you wont even know it.
    It's 100% a waste of time!

    Why not? I don't understand what point yer tryin' to make here.
    And that's basically how Mailwasher works, too. Why get either
    program?...when OE can do the job much more simply.

    Easier??!!! RIGHT! lol

    And the first thing it does is import the address book from
    OE...mainly because it works the same was OE can work for you...if
    configured properly.

    One simple rule in OE will cover 99.9% of most mail.

    Except it deletes at the server and you do not have to download
    megabytes of of swen so IE can put it in its sieveware file system.

    Don't even talk about OE and spam filter. OE has shit spam filtering
    compared to a program like MailWasher, and neither of those even come close
    to what Thunderbird can do with respect to junk mail filtering.
    Thunderbird's mail filtering is entirely automated after you turn it on and
    set it up (~5 minutes for a novice). It has called 4 good items junk, out
    of roughly 600 so far, putting it at like 99.4% accurate out of the box.

    Mailwasher doesn't require me to add all 150 people from my address book
    manually into a filter.

    You can have OE delete at the server as well. It's in the message rules.
