Hi All,
A similar provision is made in Outlook Express under the drop down menu
'Tools' then 'Message Rules'. Using these I am able to set up conditions
that sort e-mails into various folders that I create. It seems that most
e-mail programmes have devices of a similar nature except AOL which I also
have installed. AOL seems to lack this level sophistication and concerns
itself more with Parental Controls and measures for blocking mails from
particular undesirable domains.
Best wishes,Jim Rogers.
