Yep, I understand that, but at least it means it’s automatically all together and easily recognised and dumped.

Hi Tony


But do remember that the birding-aus posted spam will still end up in your birding-aus folder, because it’s been posted to the newsgroup.


For me that’s preferable than having it in with all my non-birding-aus correspondence.


All the best

I don’t receive what I would call a nuisance volume of spam, but what I do get is at least 99% routed via birding-aus.

 I get very little at all addressed directly to my personal user name, and I’m told by my ISP that this is because they have very tight spam control filters in place, and that my user name is not too easily matched by spammers.

I think Bill’s idea of setting up separate incoming message folders for traffic from certain known sources is a good one, thus allowing any messages from unrecognised sources to be put into the general inbox for later perusal and dumping if suss.

I’m about to set up some folders Bill, thanks for the idea.
