Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I am getting from time to time emails that have this kind of text in the From field: ViagraAuthorized-Store aecihogyh1599@btcentralplus.com

The header looks like this:

X-Spam-Flag: YES

X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=11.7 required=5.0 tests=CMAE_1,HTML_MESSAGE,

I’d like to set up a rule that would delete any email that has ‘viagra’ in the From field or in the header in general.

For some reason this is not working.

I have Outlook 2010, but it was the same situation with Outlook 2007.
