    Filter on text in Outlook 2003 (Outlook 2003 latest SP)

    I am now getting about 200 email msgs a day from spammers. The email address they are slamming has an automated reply that I cannot shut off--so they know they are sending to a valid email address (it is a tech support queue for my docs team).

    The server already deletes attachments, so the body of every message contains the .gif extension when it hits my inbox.

    I would like to create a junk email filter based on graphics extensions shown in the body of the email message--I do not get any email ever that contains pictures from this address.

    I looked up a possible solution but it only pertains to OE.

    Any help please?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You can create a rule for this:
    - Select Tools | Rules and Alerts.
    - Click 'New Rule...'
    - Select 'Start from a blank rule'.
    - Click Next.
    - Tick the check box 'With specific words in the body'.
    - Click the 'specific words' link in Step 2 below.
    - Specify the text (.gif), then click Add.
    - You can add more words/phrases if desired.
    - Click OK when done.
    - Click Next if needed.
    - Select 'Move it to the specified folder' as action.
    - Click the 'specified folder' link in Step 2 below.
    - Specify your Junk e-mail folder as target.
    - Click Next and follow the rest of the instructions.

    See 0326 - How do I filter SPAM using Outlook 2003? for an illustrated guide (it uses specific words in the subject, but the idea is the same).
