I have a customer with a website.  He is getting lots and lots of email sent to "anyname@hiswebsite.com".  That stuff is mostly spam.  We have set a rule in Outlook that says that if his name (Barry) is not in the TO line or in the CC line the email gets deleted.  However, becasue of the work he does, there are people who send him emil which goes to others with his name only in the BCC line.  I can't find a way to add that to the filter.  Any suggestions?

What version of outlook is this ?

If you have setup a rule with the condition that the name is NOT in TO and NOT in CC and still if the email comes , does it not automatically mean it should be in BCC. I see one of the conditions in creating a rule as
suspected to be june email or from junk senders..

Can you use that

I would change the rule exection order like this ...

1)  If the sender is (one these folks that BCC: you, you know who they are) mark message as unread and STOP PROCESSING of other rules.
2)  If the recipient is <> Barry on the TO: or CC: then delete it.


Another alternative is to forward your mail though the services @despammed.com.  I used this for my web addresses in this fashion.

email@my_website.com -->  email@despammed.com --> email@my_isp.net

If you use despammed you can add another rule (I'll call it 1b to keep it in proper processing order).

1b)  If the subject line contains [despammed] then mark as unread and STOP PROCESSING of other rules.

Thanks for taking the time for this.  The problem was solved by earthlink.  They were able to stop mail that had anyname@address.com so that he was only getting mail that belonged to him.  I need to get the question closed.
