I've done the same with Mozilla / Firefox.

How about we each separately write a "Dummies Guide to Filtering / Blocking with 'X' and psot those here for folks who want to block / filter.

I'll go ahead and do Mozilla.

Will you do OE?

Might help some folks who are frustrated by the jerks who post "kook" stuff here.

Maybe an other idea is to assemble a lt of the really bad "kook" addresses so folks an filtr them, but I am hesitat. Somebody who, IMHO is a "kook" may be a valued poster to some other odeler. I have a bias to folks making their own lists of "bad posters".

Don't use Outlook or Outlook Express. Download & install Mozilla Thunderbird, import all your settings from Outlook, and your problems will be taken care of post-haste.

Forte's Agent has very effective filtering. I usually use the ancient WINVN. It's fast, simple and lean. It's filtering works well, but will only mark messages as read, not hide them.
