I am trying to control spam in my inbox. I use Outlook. All the rules
seem to work for most of the spam except Anatrim. I have tried several
ways to stop these emails but they just keep coming. Anatrim is always
the first word in the body and the rule doesn't deal with it. When I
create a new rule and check the run this rule now box it clears my
junk mail of the proper spam and permanently deletes it as requested
but the next time I get spam, it's invariably Anatrim. What can I do.

Hello albertr,

First of all, go to this website:

Spambayes on Sourceforge

and download the Spambayes client from here:

Spambayes download

Once downloaded, close Outlook and then install Spambayes. Once
Spambayes is installed open Outlook (view the read me files if you
wish) and you will be presented with a screen. Choose "I haven't
prepared for spambayes at all" and click next. Now choose "I want to
continue without training and let spambayes learn as it goes".

Browse for your inbox (it should be automatically selected). Choose
next and then next, then click finish.

Make sure to highlight the email that you do not wish to keep and
within spambayes click the Spam icon (with the evil face). Spambayes
will now learn as you register your spam. Both outlook antispam and
the spambayes spam filter will work to rid you of the unwanted spam.

Hopefully this should reduce the amount of Anatrim spam you get. If
you have any additional questions, let me know and I'll be glad to
assist you.

Thank you so much, it took me a few days to get around to finding the
time to do the download but now that it's here I already feel like I'm
winning the battle. It's great to feel empowered.
Thanks again,
