Delete email that has no subject?

Postby jatkins679 » Sat Aug 14, 2004 12:30 pm

A lot of the email spam I get has nothing in the subject line. Is there an easy way to get Pocomail to delete such mail automatically? I don't see a way to do this using the filter functionality.

Thanks.

If you create a filter to search the subject and leave the for field empty it should trigger on empty subject lines only. Deleting it automatically may be a bit risky, perhaps moving it to junk mail would be safer?

I agree with Hogyt on this one.

You never know if someone you know or is an important email from anybody is sent and the sender was in a rush and forgot to enter the subject. If you set it to delete at the server, message is gone forever. By putting it in junk mail, you can at least review it by who the sender is.

Better yet, how about automatically deleting if there is no sender's email addy? Can that be easily done?

I recommend that you use PocoMail's Bayesian Filter. This is much more sophisticated and reliable than checking individual parts of messages such as subjects. And it's a lot easier, too. :)
