Found this hint at MacOSXHints.com:<br><br> In the last few months, I've been receiving a heap of spam from China. Luckily, I've found a way to identify mail in Mail.app with that character set so that it can be marked as junk. To do this:<br><br> 1. Select Mail -> Preferences -> Rules<br> 2. Select Junk -> Edit<br> 3. Select (+) to add a new rule.<br> 4. Click on the "From" drop-down and select "Edit Header List..."<br> 5. Add "Content-Class" by typing "Content-Class" in the "Header:" text box and then hit "Add Header" and "OK."<br> 6. Set the first pop-up on your new rule to Content-Class, the second to Contains, and the third to charset="gb2312".<br> 7. Select (+) to add a new rule.<br> 8. Set the pop-ups to Subject, Contains, and charset="gb2312".<br> 9. Select (+) to add a new rule.<br> 10. Set the pop-ups to From, Contains, and charset="gb2312".<br> 11. Click the "OK" button to end the rule definition.<br><br>I'm happy to say that this gets 100% of the Far East spam that I was receiving!<br><br><br>Click here to visit me.

I actually used to get at least 10 or 12 emails a day from either Korea or China or wherever, and for some reason they just stopped.<br><br>I think my ISP(Optimum Online)'s new 'Spamaway' feature is helping to curb those. I can log on via webmail, and sure enough there's a couple hundred emails sitting there that never made it through to my inbox...<br><br>That plus the Junk mail filter seems to keep out a great deal of garbage..<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a </font color=red> <br>
Is that charset only for Chinese characters? I don't get stuff from China, but do get lots and lots of spam from Korea.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
