    Hi topazbest

    What e-mail program are you using?

    If you are using Outlook Express, you can create a Rule based on the Subject line and what it does *not* contain and have the rule move those messages to the Deleted Items folder or a folder of your own creation in Outlook Express.

    More on that at this thread:

    Let us know if that helps.
