I'm using Outlook 2000 SP-3 and Windows 98SE.

I get junk mail that is apparently comprised of JPEG's showing text and pictures but no ordinary editable text that I can get Rules Wizard to find.

How do I write the rule that finds the text in the JPEG image?

You don't.  These are graphics and are undecipherable to anything but the human eye.

I don't know that you can do this with OL2000 without some add-ins.  Take a look at http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/antivirus.htm

Although I get the gist of the VB I don't have the skills to make something like that work. I'd settle for a rule that would identify the emails with JPEG's and delete the ones that weren't on my exception list.
