Re: [TexasCzechs] Happy New Year
You're right, using a subject with the phrase [TexasCzechs] in my filter should work all the time and I'll try that. My method of looking for 'TexasCzechs@...' in the 'TO' field worked about 99% of the time because most people sending a message to a list only send it to that list and don't BCC it.
Thanks for the info. I knew about the BCC option but didn't make the connection to the 'undisclosed recipients' title in the 'TO' field of the expanded address.
Undisclosed recipients means that the sender BCC’ed all recipients of the email instead of putting them in the TO: field. This is the correct way to do email to masses, as it uncouth to display everyone in the world’s email address that you sent a message to. If you send them all by BCC it arrives at the intended recipients but does not show all those email addresses to everyone else who receives the email. Thus cutting down on people picking up your email address that you don’t know.
If you want your filters to work… set it up by subject. Set the filter to say.. if the phrase [TexasCzechs] is in the subject, then allow. This will catch all of this list-serv’s emails.

Subject: Re: [TexasCzechs] Happy New Year
I've been trying to setup some filters to keep all my spam email from going into my inbox. With Netscape I was able to say 'accept any mail if the sender is in my address book'.
In the case of the TexasCzechs group I wasn't able to do that because the TexasCzechs listserver puts the individual email address in the senders field instead of 'TexasCzechs@yahoogroups.com so I had to set up a special filter that said 'If the 'TO' address is TexasCzechs@yahoogroups.com accept the email into my inbox. This has been working fine until I received this email from you. I looked at the 'TO' field and instead of saying TexasCzechs@yahoogroups.com it said 'undisclosed recipients'. Could you tell me if you are doing special to make this happen?

Happy New Year in Czech is "st'astny novy rok." (There are two "t's"
in "st'astny".) With the little hooks and accent marks it looks like
this, if your computer can display it properly:
t'astný nový rok! (pronounced SHTYAHST-neeee NO-veeee ROK).
