Auto-delete

Wed Sep 09, 2020 4:04 am

How can I auto-delete spam? I have been getting many spam messages lately, and though the Sender field is always different, all of them contain the following characters: (support. I would like to auto-delete these messages, so that I never even see them. I have consulted the Help topic and gone into Settings to set up a filter, but apparently I am doing something wrong. I would appreciate any help. JRM

I find that auto-delete no longer works since this latest version. I have a filter set up especially for auto-delete items that previously worked but today the mails that should be auto-deleted appear in the list checkmarked as spam (red).

Sorry missed this post.

I take it your filter is correctly tagging the emails for delete, and showing the filter status in the Status column ?
Under the filter Action tab, is the option to 'Auto-delete this email'.

Should be working. If you manually stop the checking mail, this will cancel the auto-delete process. Also are any other spam tools tagging these messages, like Friends List etc .. ?

I am not manually stopping the mail check and the spammer concerned is not in my friends list. Would you like me to send you logs?

Yeah if you could, be sure to put chris in the Ticket Number field
Also if you can a screenshot of MailWasher showing the message that didn't autodelete would also be good, can be sent to forum@firetrust.com

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I never receive a mail to inform me that a reply has been made so I just clocked-in to check.
Anyway, I have nothing in my message list at the moment but the spammer concerned sends me at least 2 every day so, now I know what to do, I will deal with that when I next get one or more of those mails.

I sent logs to Chris last night. I did take a screenshot as requested but did not have time to send it to you. I will send it when I get to the office today.
