Complete lies, attachment would have contained a virus, CS mail server has removed this but thats the plan - attach you a list and you open it wondering which web sites you have been to but you get infected with the virus.

Unless it comes from Ian or Tim its not real. We don't use anonymous admin mail boxes. These should generally be ignored. I'm only drawing attention to this due to the number of people who have contacted me about viewing illegal web sites.

Dear Sir/Madam,

we have logged your IP-address on more than 30 illegal Websites.

Important:
Please answer our questions!
The list of questions are attached.


Yours faithfully,
Steven Allison

Why do my emails know that they're spam - yet don't delete themselves? give me the option to switch on something to auto move them to a spam folder or something.

Getting sick of getting about 50 emails all with 'SPAM' on the front everyday.

You using webmail or software?

If software, set up a message rule.

If webmail, Tim can do this.

Webmail...

Basically I only use my corsasport email for personal emails - I have other accounts to sign up to crap and it's just full of 'SPAM:We Have software for you!' - 'SPAM: CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT DETAILS NOW!' etc etc

I have to look through my emails for one's not saying 'Spam' to find one's I want to read. Obviously you don't want it to 'Auto' delete 'Spam' as it may mis-represent something, but if it had a temp spam folder, which it moved all marked as spam to it could be cool!

I don't think those two are related Brad.

My advice if you want to filter then Paul - don't use webmail, Outlook or similar will do this. Obvously no good if you're accessing in a number of places but a far better choice if you're not.

The only alternative would be for us to do some programming on the webmail interface which won't happen any time soon.

I'm no expert on the mail storage structure either, otherwise this could be done there, let me have a think on that....
