Several of my web sites have contact forms. Some of them are being used by nut cases to send a message containing rubbish.
Like any other spam, the sender's name is changed each time. However, the rubbish words in the message are the same each time.
I used to be able to utilise a constant like that to set a message rule in Outlook Express. I would set the filter to look for one or more of the rubbish words in the body of the email, and then I set the filter to to delete the message from the server.
Now, the message rule fails to delete the email from the server. Has something changed in Outlook Express?

Spam filter fails in Outlook Express
Hello elenka
Thunderbird also does not filter on message content. OE and Thunderbird both filter on the header of an email.
Any other suggestions for a spam filter which looks at the message body instaed of just the header? The mentally deficient twit who is sending me rubbish messages is sending daily now. Always the same rubbish but different header each time.

Regards

Awestruck
