I can't pre-filter spam

I catch a regular spammer in my email filters and try to delete their messages into oblivion.  But your server won't allow this and just spams my junk folder.

I have specifically selected their FROM email address. And still I get them.

Re: I can't pre-filter spam

The web mail filtering system only works for e-mails that arrive in your inbox. If the VM filters are working properly (as they seem to be in your case) the spam will end up in your spam folder. You'll have to delete it manually from there.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Re: I can't pre-filter spam

Thanks.  That would explain.  So it seems I will never be free from this scourge.

I would point out that spam filtering on VM in general is not satisfactory.  That's another thread.
