    create message rule for spam? (XPH SP2 all updates)

    I could cope with the 10 - 20 spam messages per day about ** Spam post - please alert a Moderator ** by just deleting them, but now I'm being swamped. I created a rule with various letters before the AGRA ie VklAGRA, VlmAGRA etc to move to junk folder, but they keep changing and coming in a new combination. I tried what I thought was a wildcard combination "***AGRA" but that doesn't work, any suggestions? or should I go for software spam killer like Macafee Spamkiller?

    Jeff,
    AS you have found out, the spammers keep changing the titles to different combinations, so the rules bit is usually a losing battle.

    A third party Spam Utility is best and it seems everyone has their own favorite. I use "emousetrap" and you can get a free 30 trial at MOUSETRAP

    I'm sure others will chip in with their own favorite. Standby.

    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!
