Apparently a number of spammers have figured out that sending emails with nothing in the "Subject" box/line will confuse many email program's filtering (especially anything from Microsoft, can't say for sure on Thunderbird or other 3rd party software). But there is a way around this.

You can create a mail rule that will send any email with no Subject to a junk or deleted folder. Here's how:

An Outlook Rule for Messages with No Subject

This should work in Outlook Express, Outlook, and Windows Live Mail.

PS: in addition to all the vowels you may want to add "f" or "fw" for those occasions someone forwards you an email without anything else other than FW in the subject box/line.

Some very good suggestions Mac. I am always amazed how far people go to send out these ridiculous emails. Although I suppose as long as they are making money scamming people they will continue.

I like the emails saying they are stranded in an airport and need me to send them cash. While for me it is funny, I would hate to know how many times elderly people might fall for this email.

Wish we can send them a big electronic surge to their computer to stop them!

Apparently blank "from" blocks can do the same thing.

A similar rule can be created by selecting "Where the From line contains people" instead of "Where the Subject line contains specific words".

I suggest adding all of the alphabet and numbers 0-9 and then change the options to "does not contain..." (just as you did with the subject in the rule described in the previous post)

Everything I read online said the "@" symbol was all you need but that wouldn't work in Windows Live mail (apparently had something to do with the from line in the header info containing the senders name and then the actual email address inclosed in "<>")

PS: you have to add each letter and number separately in both rules. Don't enter all of them all at once in the "add" box and click add!
