Opps, sorry Till. I'm using kmail-1.4.3 (again after upgrading to
rh8.0 this morning -- back on the morning of the 16th that is, and
discovering that evolution apparently doesn't support my isp's
login procedure for sending mail) I had to dl all 106 packages of
kde-3.0.4 for rh8.0 and install it all before I could get that
working again. The fonts look like he!! but its working. And its
been a looong day.
That filter will grab anything in the From: line with the keyword
'autoresponder' (case insensitive) in it, so its pretty general. I
just sent 5 or 6 more of them to email@example.com, something just above
a megabyte total of that excrement for them to sort through.
