How to actually prevent unwanted messages to be showed by OE6?

Hi all :)

I am a OE6 user running on W98SE and have been using the 'Blocked Senders' utility and a mail rule to send spam to the dustbin. But I want to get a step beyond. I simply don´t want to see that unwanted messages, I mean, can I erase them before they reach my puter or send them to hell on arrival? I discovered the 'Do not download it from the server' and the 'Delete it from server' options. But, will they give me the results I am looking for (both stated above)?

I know spam management is a Never Ending Story, but I need some advice on this matter.

As always, thanks in advance.

"Do not download it from the server" means the email is not downloaded to OE6 but remains on the server. So each time OE6 check the server, it will go through this check.

"Delete it from the server" means the email is deleted, and your OE6 will not have to deal with it again.

I use "Delete it from the server".

Best wishes, war1
