    I use Outlook XP, I have had a good look at the filters ect. but can't find one that does it by language...

    The problem is I get at least 25 Korean bits of mail (nothing dodgy!!) but I have no Idea what it is about.

    I tried babelfishing it, but it made even less sence!!!

    Is it possible to create a rule that moves mail of a certain language to a seleceted folder?

    Thanks....

    SOLUTION: Send 25 replies to every email address that you get Korean Mail from.

    Very odd. Can you see the e-mail address from which they are being sent? Is it all from the same place or multiple places?

    Bad solution. If it's spam then:
    1. The reciever won't care or
    2. The reply address doesn't exist and you will get 25 bounced mails back.

    If it's a legit mailing list then you'll (maybe) have an angry admin on your ass.

    I'll second the Mailwasher suggestion. I have been using it for about a month and the amount of spam I recieve is down by about 80%. It is a great little program

    why would you need to install a software to handle the junk mails when Outlook XP rule wizard can handle it... just create a new blank rule with the option of deleting all new mail with a specific word in the sender's address. that should do it...

    The nice thing about mailwasher is that when you bounce an email to the sender it gives them a can not be delivered message. Then they think that the addy is no longer valid and stop sending you email. At least most do after a couple of bounced spams.It effectivly bounces the spam before it ever makes it to your computer.

    I too am getting either chinese/japanese or korean emails in my account.
    Its bloody annoying.
    i cant find the source for it, ive made several rules but they keep coming in

    Is there not a rule to block all non-english character emails?

    Do the emails have any common korean words in them, if so you could filter on them

    No....

    Looks like i'll jus use the rules wizard... not perfect because there are so many different sending addresses, but if I put them in my list, then send them directly to a folder that automatically deletes them every day.... that should be painless enough (i hope) - thanks for your input.... might have a we gamnder at that
