filter technique

When creating a filter that searches for words in the email body:
Can I list the words like viagra, cialis and so on with a comma or is the comma even needed? Just trying not to have 1000 filters for a 1000 words.

What about proper names like angelina jolie? How does one make sure that it grabs the full name so someone with the name angelina smith would not get filtered out?

Thanks
Dave

You can have OR condition in a filter, in place where you currently most probably see THEN.
You could consider using Word Lists which are part of Junk Mail Filters, to ban certain words or increase their "spam rating".

As for Angeline Jolie, just enter that into filter and I believe Angelina Smith shouldn't trigger that filter condition (though I admit I didn't check it.), only full phrase Angelina Jolies.

Though, given how many written spammy variations the word viagra alone has, I can't imagine having to handle the spam words lists manually anymore. Not speaking about not getting emails with the banned words, when mentioned innocently or jokingly for example. Over time I have learnt to fully rely on bayesian filtering (I'm very happy with SpamBayes, though if I didn't have the large training base in that I think I'd use the built-in bayesian filtering.)
