    Hi Folks!

    Hope this is the right place to post this. I am having trouble with emails. I use incredimail and I have been getting emails sometimes like 50 at a time all about increase your ***** and viagra. I have tried blocking sender and and deleteing them but can't seem to rid myself of this constant pain.

    Would you have any ideas of how I could get rid of this once and for all? It is very annoying. Thank you very much.

    I'm not familiar with that email client but most email clients allow you to create rules. Rules can be used to delete, move, etc....emails. Check your email client's help files.

    If incredimail has "word" blockers you can put offensive words into the list and emails with these selected words would be omitted from your mail.

    My wife and I now get mail we want and the rest just seems to be gone! Pretty cool.

    Check for this feature with your, and other, ISP's.

    Check this page:

    http://www.incredimail.com/english/faq/message_rule.html

    I do not see anything in the examples given on the page to do with the "Body" of the message but it may have something like that. I do not use incredimail either, but check it out.

    What you want is the ability to send all mail that has the word viagra, etc. in the e-mail body to the delete folder.

    The Subject line or Sender will not be enough of a filter.


    If Incredimail does not have the ability to filter e-mail based on the body content there are other alternatives for doing this, but I'll let others suggest them to you. :)

    Is it possible to get other reply's as I can only use the from and subject line in incredimail. I can set these 2 up to delete but not the body content. Thanks ever so much.

    O.K.

    This is my opinion. I use the paid for version of this product but on the below web page is the free version. The free version allows one e-mail account to be checked. The free version is no longer in development but it is a good application:

    Free Version:
    http://www.mailwasher.net/


    Pay for version:
    http://www.firetrust.com/index.php


    Again my own opinion: Don't be concerned with the bounce feature. It's not really necessary to use it. The filters are good. It can take a while to learn how to use all of the features, not in the sense that the features are difficult, just that there are a lot of them.

    But don't make a decision on the above product yet, others may come up with other solutions that are better and that I'm not aware of.
