    Message Rules (OE6)

    I am using Message Rules in simple ways to block some of the spam I am receiving. Currently, I am getting a lot of emails with the subject as "hi". Is there a way to only delete these messages without deleting other messages that have "hi" embedded in a word, such as high, him, hit, etc? (I typically use the time-tested DELETE key method most of the time, but would like to automate it a little, if possible.) Thanks.

    Get a decent Spam filiter that lets you set specific message rules. Best I 've seen is eMousetrap.

    Try it or buy it at EMOUSETRAP

    Now it's the ONLY Spam Killer I use. Recomended. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Unlike Bob, I'm not in a position to demand that people respond to a challenge before I receive their e-mail, so I use a more traditional filtering program (SAProxy). I recently had to train it to recognize these "hi" messages because typically they contain very little content. But I digress.

    I don't see a way to do this in OE's rules.

    Thanks, guys. I suspected OE couldn't do what I was asking. I'll try the programs mentioned.

    Thanks,

    SAProxy is available for USD 10 if you use the details in <!profile=jscher2000>jscher2000<!/profile>'s post <!post=here,304378>here<!/post>. You do have to get Bloomba as well, but you don't have to have Bloomba running for SAProxy to work.

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> I'm still running the old free version, SAProxy 1.2.1, not the SAProxy Pro 2.0, but I hear it's a worthwhile update.
