Need filter for blank From field

Sun Jan 13, 2013 4:30 am

How do I setup a filter for a From field that is blank. I want to delete these automatically since I don't know who or what they are from.

Are you using MW version 5 or 6 or the newer 201X version? This forum is for that older version and I don't have it running to post a screenshot. If you are on 201X there are some excellent filtering tips in that forum.

Try this:

from does not contain regex .

That is a trailing period which in regex means any character.

ortry this to avoid regex:

from does not contain @

Which doesn't look for it being blank but for it missing the @ symbol all valid addresses must have.
