I'm picking up a lot of spam from my info at businessname mail address.

I've tried to set up a rules to delete them, without success. Just to say I'm successfully running other rules directing mail by subject / content into approriate folders.

I have two accounts being fed into my inbox. The filter seems to work on one account, but not the info account.

Has anyone got any ideas?

i'm running xp home sp1.

Hi

The rule is set on key words in the body.

When I add a new word to the list, (all around the medications), and try to "run now" the filter doesn't work.

I've got a working filter for ebay, but those come in on one account. How do you ensure it is checking both account?

In the past I've had another rule which worked, but I do remember deleting by mistake and when I put it back in - that wouldn't work either.

Is it possible that the senders are formating thier mail so filters don't pick them up?

Kev

Yes its absolutely possible they are doing. They are able to encrypt or use obfuscating methods so that the text in the email is not actually the same as what you are seeing. Try sending yourself an email from a free service with the strings you are trying to capture in your filter and see if it works
