Poco Filter FAQ - Filter using addresses from a text file

Q: I want to filter messages to a folder based on multiple satisfying conditions listed in a text file.

I want to use this filter to move newsletter e-mails to a common folder. However, I don't want to add the newsletter e-mail addresses to my address book. I also want to have *all* of the newsletter e-mail addresses (e.g., the matching conditions) contained within the same filter.

 
A:
You can either specify multiple conditions in the filter by changing the then drop down box to or or you can put all the newsletter addresses in a text file and use that by specifying the file name in the "for" box using the following syntax: %file%:"filename"

By default Poco will search for the file within your PocoMail root directory.

This can be used against the body or the header. It does a "per-line" comparison. Let's say I have "\test.txt" that contains:

foo@bar.com
bar@baz.com
baz@bee.com
I can then create a filter that says If From contains %file%:"test.txt" Then and choose my action.

This will find any From header that matches any of the lines in "<PocoMail>\test.txt".
