  3. Message filters

    How do you filter the whole server and all the newsgroups you are
    subscribed to. It's kine of stupid to have to make a filter for each and
    every newsgroup you are subscribed to to block an asshole multi-poster
    like MI5.

    the Map". Something new to me in the other replies.

    Another interesting thing is the Subject in the subject windows is not
    the subject in the message. They are not the same. Some are RE: and
    others are different altogether. HOw can the same message have different
    subjects in different windows??

    Unless you have a very special server, you cannot delete messages
    you did not write (and most servers won't even let you cancel the
    ones you did). My solution is to mark them read and only view
    "threads with unread" YMMV
