    Hey, it seems that an email spam rule made to detect any message with "Viagra" in it doesnt work well when spammers spell it with various ascii characters...

    i see that outlook has macro functionality...not being too much of a programmer, is it possible to create an email filter that detects a specific set of ascii characters. Nobody sends email with wierd ascii characters, just spammers. Any help would be appreciated.

    and rep points for sure! :)

    You might be able to make a email rule that says "if subject contains" Then enter as many ascii characters as you can come up with "Then send to trash". That might work.
