Missing Message Rules

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Grenou, Jan 14, 2010.

    The internet appears to bring out the nastier side of a lot of people, as
    witnessed in this very group.
    Is there a repair utility that can rectify such behaviour?
    The Delete button on my keyboard is working overtime, the text on the key is
    fading.

    Maybe there is a Message Rule entry that I can tick to let the posters
    know that they are infantile and not at all funny, or clever even.
    I have already removed a few names, also anything not related to what this
    group is about.

    I, for one, would like to thank the MVPs who put in a lot of time and effort
    to help others getting to grips with Windows 7 and WLM's quirks, of which
    there seem to be many.

    Thanks MVPs.
    You do a great job.
    :)

    If you reply to these people to tell them what they are doing is not
    right, all you're doing is feeding them by giving them attention. Just
    ignore them and move on.

    Instead of a rule to reply, why not just use one to remove the offenders,
    like you do with spam?
    Apply this rule after the message arrives

    Where the From line contains <name1> or <name2> or <name3>

    or Where the Subject line contains <idiocy subject1> or <idiocy subject2>

    Delete it

    and Stop processing more rules

    I've used these for years in OE, WM, and WLM in both news and email with no
    problems. Can't say if I've ever missed anything or not ;-)

    You see this in every group.

    Pretty funny!
