    is there any way to set up a mail rule so that if the email is from a certain domain (blahblah@WEBSITE.COM) the email is sent to a folder?

    In Outlook Express:

    Check out : Tools, Message Rules, Mail Rules, New (Mail Rule) and then check out the options for Conditions and Options!

    Yeah, but there isn't one for domains

    I never tried it - but what happens if you enter a domain rather than "people"?????

    I guess it's worth a try!

    I have tried blocking users and domains using the rules, but don't work. I still get emails on how to get free sex, where to buy a new car, how to get rich and loans, and how to fix my credit. I have created rules for key words but the messages keep coming.

    Your best bet is to setup a Hotmail or Yahoo email account and redirect or signup for places using that address. No matter how hard you work at setting up a rule, an email is bound to get by it, or that rule will delete an email you wanted to read.

    Right on Madmatt!

    I use a hotmail account for most things on the net and once you have an account, from your Hotmail Home Page, Select Options, then under Mail Handling, select JUNK MAIL FILTER. There are four options ranging from OFF to EXCLUSIVE. Each Option has a full explaination of what it does - I use HIGH so I can look at what is going to my Junk Mail Folder and see if there is anything I want to keep, and then do the "This is not Junk Mail thingy!" if I want to keep it.

    Also under Junk Mail Delection - you can select immdediate or delayed. Using delayed you can see what is being filtered - or immediate - it will never get to your account.

    I went ot England last October for three weeks vacation and I use Exclusive and Immediate Deletion and came home to ZERO Junk Mail!

    Hope you can understand what I am getting at!
