Re: [NTO] Re: SPAM/Filtering
- Hi Alec,
The reason I get all the trash (more recently a flood) I delete
at the server level is because I cannot afford blocking customers
eMail otherwise I'd be doing it. Eric does some SPAM filtering
for us, but again, we have to be extra careful.

mail was sent to (that's how I like it)
Only one summary count total shown in the systray icon, but the icon changes
color if any mail came in that meets designated filter conditions.
For each filter you can designate which WAV file gets played. I recorded
messages so that I get:
"Personal mail for alec" (has the string "alec" in it)
"Mail for pattie" (it was sent to my wife's account - not much of this)
"Yahoo-bounce back" (To: contains @yahoogroups and From:is_my_account")
"Regular mail" anything not meeting one of the above three filter conditions
Only mail that meets "Personal mail for alec" condition has the flag set to
display a pop-list. When shown it lists ALL mail waiting on the server, with
the "Personal mail" sorted at the top.
Regards ... Alec
