    Lotus Notes Problems (Lotus Notes)

    Anyone out there "having" to use (s)Lotus Notes for their email ? I have to at work...company policy.
    Looking for anyone that has found a way to make the "Rules" work. I am getting spam and the filter does not work.
    I set it up to filter the incoming "sender" to the trash can, but it just bypasses it. Some filter. Wish I could use Eudora, that works.
    Any help ?

    Tim...

    Which version of LN are you using? Our company currently uses 4.6 (going to 5.06 soon) but I think that 6.0 is also in release. Might help in trying to tell you what to do with your filters.

    I'm currently using version 5.08 at work, and I have rules setup for internal spam (isn't that awful ???).

    How are you trying to filter? By sender .... by subject .... etc. ?

    Well, most of the time I have the "sender" as the check point. Some filters I have are for "subject".
    I finally got the vendor to take me off his list so that I don't get over 500 emails from them in one day.
    I just think the filtering in Lotus is crappy. I use Eudora at home for mail and it filters correctly every time.

    Tim,
    I am using R5.0.6a nad have noticed that the rules do not seem to run consistantly. I have a number set up filing mail into different folders according to keywords in the subject line.
    A couple of the rules work spot on every time, others don't work at all. The only consistancy I have have picked up on so far is that if the subject line is short the filter seems to kick in just fine, whereas if it is a long sentence containing the keyword it dosn't seem to work.

    Thanks Andrew. I find about the same thing. Sometimes they work, most of the time they don't.
