Spam Filter

  Quiet Life 23:07 07 Feb 2007

My server has a filter and all the Viagara ,University degrees, Mortgages etc no longer hit my account.
However I am now inundated with American Share Tips where the sending address changes all the time and reporting as Spam has no effect.
However 90% of these are addressed to mainly three accounts ,none of which are mine, and apparently arrive on my acccount because my account is I am told by the Server BC in the original e-mail. My account must be BC three times because invariably these e-mails arrive in threes.
It used to be fairly easy to tick and delete all these as Spam on the web but my Server is now introducing a new (improved!) web Mail Account where the delete process is much longer.
Is there a free Spam Filter that can pick up e-mails on the web account not addressed to me and put in the Web Mail Spam Folder?

Mailwasher with some suitable rules; click here

or Magic Mail Monitor - less than 200k
click here
I use MMM3 and have filters to auto-delete any emails including the words `micro` and `cap` (amongst another 20 or 30 rules) - they seem to catch most of the `penny stock` spam, the text ones anyway. GIF images are easy to catch and delete too, another way of hiding spam from filters.

Hi brundle neither of these appear to pick up mail where I am the BC and the mail ends up in my account but is addressed to somebody else.

With the right filters they will both do that, you just have to check for certain text in the header.
ie `If To "not includes" <your email address>` and `If header "includes" <your email address>` in both cases.

I use this, click here. I think it takes up to 8 different e-mail accounts,I just delete the spam,And the rest you can either open,Or when you use your normal e-mail account it transfers on to that,
