I've searched on this, and while other people have had the same problem no one seemed to have a solution.

About a week ago I started getting crazy junk mails to my main address which I never give out to companies so I dont know how they're getting there, but I'm trying to use Outlook 2000's filters to get rid of them. But they never work. Here is an example of the rule I have made by going to Organize>Rules Wizard:

I created a new rule, chose 'Move messages based on content', and set the rule up to check the subject and body for certains words like pill, *****, etc... I created a junk folder which its supposed to move the messages to. I also set the rule to move messages suspected of being junk mail based on the identification factors that come with Outlook. But to no avail.

I've seen lots of other posts by people who can't get these filters to work, has anyone figured them out??
