    I use OE and have a number of folders with rules for moving mail from incoming to other folders to keep organized. This includes several mailing lists. Until a week or so ago I was using Comcast restricted list to get rid of what I didn't want and just download. Afterwhich various senders would be filtered to folders.

    Back on 10/2 Comcast started blocking my mailling lists. Turns out that I didn't have all members on the restricted list (limited to 200) and when these members bounced for not being on the lists (hadn't been for a long time but nothing ever happened until now) Comcast put the mailing lists on a SPAM list. Then their new upgrade caused other problems with the restricted list like anyone on it didn't get thru. I guess they are still working on it.

    I can set up a whitelist with OE, but I haven't found a way to have incoming mail on the whitelist be moved to specific folders rather then just one folder so I have to manually move everything again after the fact, which is a real pain.

    Anyone know how to set OE Mail Rules to allow another layer of mail rules to move from the white list folder? I know in rules when you add the address there is an option button. Is there some combination I can set up that will allow this?

    I saw MailWasher was recommended, but unless it allows importing of addresses and email from OE I am not interested nor am I interested in having to decide if friend or foe. I don't want to even see foe mail. Also, I have over 30,000 emails I keep archived and not going to be switching back and forth between email programs for searching thru my folders of which I do a lot of.

    If Comcast just increased their limit on the restricted list I would be OK, but they haven't though I put a bug in their ear about it I am sure they are deaf.

    I forgot to use the option "does NOT contain" for my white list. Once I set that the rest of the email comes in and goes to the correct folders and the rest to SPAM Mail.

    Sorry for bothering.
