Can I use a wild card in an Outlook rule?


B

Builder Brown

I want to filter spam I have been receiving where the subject contains the
name of the sender, which changes with each email. For example:
the sender's name is MaryZ and the subject is "From: MaryZ" while the next
spam will be from GeorgeA and the subject will be "From: GeorgeA". I would
prefer not to remove all items that contain "From" but tried "From: "Sender""
without success.
I'm using Outlook 2003.

Rules do not support wildcards.

What version of Outlook? Are you using its Junk mail filter? That is more
effective than rules.
