Same FROM and TO address filter

Sun Jun 10, 2018 7:02 am

Need a filter for dumping mail that has the same FROM and TO address.
It's easy if the user's address is spoofed, but nowadays a lot of spammers use random gibberish for the address pair. I just need a filter that flags the mail if FROM and TO are the same.
Thanks

Sorry DearWebby, I missed this post.

Unfortunately there isn't a way at present to compare two fields in this way, though will add it to the list to hopefully look into one day, as technically it's not especially difficult.

On the list, but a long way down unfortunately. Programmers are working on version 8, once that's complete we can resume regularly scheduled alterations to MailWasher.

Thanks
