I use Pegasus Mail to filter E-mail and block spam for FREE, all spam.pnp updates posted here!

I was using Pegasus Mail in the 90's and recently 
decided to look at it again. The author's web site
is http://www.pmail.com and he has continued its
development into something incredibly useful. 
Most amazing of all is that he keeps it free by only 
selling the documentation.. 

Anyway, in addition to its neat automatic spam
content filter, you can create and utilize custom 
filters which will in fact filter everything and do so 
on the server side, if you tell it to. I figured it all 
out in one night using the HELP INDEX included
with Pegasus Mail. 

The filter file I created is called spam.pnp and it
contains an IP listing of mail servers known for 
spam which still make their way through the black
lists that the network servers rely on. You place
the list in the PMAIL\MAIL\ADMIN directory
and then tell Pegasus Mail to reference the file
for your filter. The spam list I created will be 
continously updated and made available here:

My question is: How do you tell PegasusMail to reference the file for 
your Filter?
I would appreciate it very much if you could point that out.
(Just using Pegasus for three weeks)

Hello Lex,

Just an advice: don't use this filter! I tried it one day, and it
deleted not only the spam but mails from friends too. Try the Content
Control, it sets the spam aside in a separate folder in Pegasus. Then
you can at least take a quick look if some mails are incorrectly
marked as spam before deleting them all...
You can find information about the Content Control in the Pegasus-Help

Greetz,
Arthur van Bijleveld

Just had a quick look at the "widders" filter, and I can see some of the 
trouble. The filter appears to work on IP addresses, probably for listed 
open proxies. Such filters will match on any Received: line in an email, and 
many proxy lists cover dynamic address pools. Alas, legitimate messages are 
also delivered from those pools, and will have Received: lines that might 
match.

I have created a very similar set of filters over time, but I don't dump 
messages from ISPs where my friends have service. It is one thing to dump 
email from Latin America, or the Far East, when I know I won't get email 
from those regions. But it is dangerous to use the same rationale for email 
from "local" (meaning U.S. ISPs for me; I expect that would be European ISPs 
for a German!) ISPs.

I am a simple user and I am searching for a webmail service that
offers real good User-Defined filters and forwarding options on the
client side. I appreciate that filters in some webmail offer the
possibility to Discard Email messages using criteria defined by the
user.

But I wish to find a webmail service that would offer filter's
condition to Delete and Expunge all mails with attached .EXE .SRC .PIF
and so on... The messages need to be deleted defenitely - not to be
moved in a Bulk or Trash folder. If they are moved to Trash/Bulk it is
no good at all because the mailbox fills up really fast.
If I want my visitors to send me attached file, I can give them an
undisclosed name to use for the attachement.

From my experience, I want to delete all files that come typically
between 140 kb and 160 kb per message... but this may change in the
future. So the filters have to be User-Defined. If my webmail would
offer this I could get rid of all mesages that contain .EXE .SRC .PIF
in the contents body or in the title (path.exe, update.exe, and so
on...).

So my questions are: 
1) Is there a WebMail service that gives the option to filter / Kill /
Delete / Expunge messages depending of a string found in the contents
(body) of the messages?

2)Is there a WebMail service that gives the option to filter message
depending of the name (or extension as: *.exe) of an attached file in
the messages?

3)Is there a WebMail service that gives the option to automatically
empty the Trash folder when the mail box reaches 80% (User-Defined) ?

All of these filters would be great, but one of them would be
enough... Example:

Filter 1 would be:
if Message contains undisclosed_name.EXE then move message to Inbox
Filter 2 would be:
if Message contains .EXE then Delete and Expunge
Filter 3 would be:
if mailbox is 50% full Delete and Expunge oldest messages located in
Trash and Bulk Folder
Filter 4 would be:
if mailbox is 80% full Delete and Expunge all contents of Trash and
Bulk Folder
Filter 5 would be:
else then forward message to another address or mail service

Contact me if you know a webmail service that offers such options.
All of these filters would be great, but one of them would be
enough...

Thank you
