MMM b19 Filters setup

Postby Tonyg » Sat Sep 25, 2010 8:23 pm

Hello.

I'm using Magic Mail Monitor b19 on a Windows XP SP3 computer.

Is there a way to add multiple entries to the filters in MMM without going through the dialog boxes one at a time?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

Hello,
No, sorry, I'm afraid currently there is no such ability.
I will think about adding one, thank you!

Hello.

Thanks for your reply.

I really like Magic Mail Monitor. I use it daily. It is always part of my computing life. I bring it with me wherever I go. It is so easy to use. It is probably one of the best utilities i have ever used.

I downloaded the source code and i have Visual Studio 6.0. I can open all of the source code files, but my only problem is that i don't know C++. I wish I did. I could tweak MMM to my own personal preferences.

Is it possible for you to tell me which area of the source code i would look at if I wanted to modify the MMM filters so that i could automatically add email FROM addresses to the filters?

Thanks,
Tony

If all that you need is to add FROM address to filter, you can do it quickly - just create filter you need using text file for content, like "<From> Equals '$blacklst.txt'".
Than in message popup menu you should have AddToList command, which will allow you quickly add from field to that list.

Hello,

I'm not sure of how this helps me.

I added a new filter with the "<From> Equals '$blacklst.txt'". I checked 'Delete from server' checkbox in the Filters dialog box. I right click an unneeded email from the list and selected 'Add to Lists\blacklst.txt\From'. It then displayed blacklst.txt in Notepad showing the new entry.

It didn't do anything, so i hit F7 and it still did nothing.

Is it supposed to delete the email if the 'From' matches the blacklst.txt entry?

Is it OK to use "<From> Includes '$blacklst.txt'"?

Any help that you can provide would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

Sorry for delay!
So, if you have filter file opened, then everything should be OK.
Do you have filters enabled, and that specific filter enabled too in filter list?

Hello,

When you say "Do you have filters enabled", if you mean do i have the "Use filters automatically" checkbox checked?

I don't have that checkbox checked.

Thanks,
Tony

Yes, that one is not required for manual filters execution. But you have this specific filter checked in list? And if you have several mailboxes, filter is not configured for just one?

Hello,

Yes I have that specific filter checked in the list of filters. I also have the Mailbox set to "*" for all mailboxes.

Thanks,
Tony
