Hi http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Because I'm receiving tons of spam mail at an email address that I use exclusively for my work and that I get via OE - I was wondering if there's any option in OE that allows you to make some sort of exclusive list of addresses that you wish to receive emails from - a way of drastic flitering that may exclude all the other addresses apart from the specified ones.

Thanks http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Yeah. You can set up filters for senders you wish to receive mail from, and delete the rest. TOOLS > MESSAGE RULES > MAIL.

Thanks!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

It seems there is some light, then... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Ah, I do hope this is sorted out! This spamming business is becoming so annoying lately. There's no chance I'll open OE and I won't receive at least three spam mails every time :rolleyes:

LOL http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Yeah, but if you consider that when I am online I may check OE, let's say, five times and all these five times I get spam mail every time... and than I may get online four times (or more) in a day, if you sum these up, then I'm not so lucky :(

There is a new law in the U.S. that demans spam senders to clearly label adult-oriented emails. This will be good for filtering out the trash. I hope it kicks off over here too. Something like 75% of all email sent is spam. All that bandwidth... damn lot of money.

Hmmm... OK, it looks like I can put the addresses I want and leave out all the others. But will this rule be applied to all of my mail addresses that I check via OE? I have four addresses there, but I want to apply that rule only to that specific one... I can't see an option to specify the address for which this rule will be valid for :confused:

I'll check my Outlook Express when I get home and let you know if I can find a solution.
