Rules and Alerts - BCC field


P

Peter

Hi,

Is there a way to set up a rule/alert based on the contents of the BCC field
of incoming mail, please?

I'm running Outlook from Office 2003 Professional 2003.

Thanks,

Pete

.... mainly because there is no Bcc field on incoming mail.

That makes sense, thank you. It's a pity spammers use this facility to
pretty much guarantee getting through rule settings, though :-(

Rule settings are no good at fighting spam.
