does 'Mail' have a spam filter?

DooBall

Where's your head at?
im using the same account i use on my pc, and i have around 200+ spammers in my list.

i would like to use my mac to get mail from the same account, but OMG, spam spam spam, i cant find any real mail!

anyone know if Mail has a spamlist function?

you can always apply rules to mails containing certain words or coming from certain adresses ... but the best spampreventer of them all is to bounce stuff back... :)

At least until spammers catch onto some version string or formatting that Mail.app includes. Then they'll know you actually opened the mail, which will bring even more spam down upon you.

Sithious, what software do you use that allows you to Bounce mail back?

Does Mail.app have the feature?

I wish Outlook had it.

yep, that's mail.app...
probably outlook express will have it when the os x version comes out, microsoft seem to be in favour of 'adopting' mac features ... :p
