Re: [leafnode-list] Filtering out spam

Sorry, I went on with other things, and in the meantime, the messages in 
question have stopped.

So far, i have only tested running my Inbox through the filter after it is 
downloaded.  My newsreader is Knode.  After the operation, when I look with 
Knode, the item is still listed in the GUI, but the article is no longer 
there.   I get the same result as where leafnode has deleted a stale message, 
but Knode's own delete mechanism hasn't deleted its listing yet.  I click on 
the item, and I get a message that it is no longer there, and I can try 
Google Groups.  Since the behaviour is exactly parallel, it would seem that 
it is a problem with Knode's index, not with Leafnode.  I can delete them 
individually, but not automatically.

The reason for wanting it is that the body of the message is simply a virus, 
but the <Subject:> line offends my wowserish sensitivities.  If the line 
remains in Knode's list,  there is no point in deleting the message. 


(P.S.: Sorry to reply directly to you Matthias.  It is the default with recent 
versions of Kmail.  To reply to the list, I have to click on your message and 
select "Reply to Mailing List.")
