I have set Outlook Express mail filters to 'DELETE FROM SERVER' any mail
which contains any of these words in the 'FROM' line. So far it is working
great except that I have to add a new one or two just about every day,
I spend a bunch of time waiting for my antivirus to check the incoming mail
have to delete half of it any way because of the worms.
(Go to tools>message rules>mail>NEW>"If the FROM line contains
people">(insert one of the words from the list below)>click the bottom box
"Delete from server"......Click OK to save the basic rule.. Next> select
that same rule and click on the word you saved before such as "admin" and a
new box will open for you to type in the next word and ADD to the list then
OK it and click on the last word you added and keep going until you have the
MANY of these are repeated over and over again which you can see if you
check the FROM lines of the incoming JUNK.
The above are all set to DELETE FROM SERVER so I never see them.
Sorry about the LONG post but IT WERKS FER ME......
GOOD LUCK and HAPPY SURFING.
