    Hi Vijay,

    If the account is such that it can only be accessed via a web page (and cannot be accessed via a POP3 or IMAP client) then I don't see any means of filtering the email without something having already been implemented by the Website/Email hosters.

    Regards,

    Dan

    You can use a program called Web2Pop which you can download here:
    www.jmasoftware.com (not freeware)
    After that you can use any pop-based spamkiller you want

    You can also use ePrompter, which allows you to check most common webmail accounts from the desktop and filter them as you would POP mail.

    I've been using ePrompter for about a year. It's simple, convenient and reliable. Both times I had questions, they responded in short order and were helpful & friendly. Who could ask for more? :) mj
