Most of you know how to do this, and the procedure varies from one Email client
(program) to another, but perhaps it is worth mentioning.
If there is a topic, term, or email address that you don't wish to see again in
your Inbox, you can filter it out. Messages containing the filtered word or
phrase, or address, go straight to your trash/deleted items. Most programs
will show them as UNREAD mail, but you can still get rid of them when you empty
your trash / deleted items.
The simplest way of setting up a filter is:
Open a message containing the address or word(s) you want to filter, then from
the SPECIAL Menu select "Make Filter" (in Outlook I think you find this in the
MESSAGE Menu). You will then get a box which asks you to set all sorts of
preferences for THIS FILTER only. Click OK when you've set up the filter, and
sit back and relax.
This would be a very effective way of never having to read anything from Night
Parrot again - or anything on Cannon Netting, or from me ..... whatever you
Thank you to those people who have suggested this. I won't mention your names
because I'd hate to see you flamed or spammed.
Of course, similar options are available to me for Birding-Aus - but at this
stage I don't want to add any new filters. It would be terrible if a REAL
Night Parrot turned up between Adelaide and Melbourne and none of us could tell
Tony & Mike about it via this list ....
