sounds like you are setting up your filters wrong then Leo. Pehaps when
you set a new filter, look at the sender, say, if you don't like me for
example....have it filter anything posted by me... but that won't help
when folks reply and copy word for word what I posted in their reply. ie
verbatim.... or have it look in the body as well since posts, even when
brought ot can get the subject line changed from time to time. so if
you try to filter OT starbucks for example and it later gets changed to
OT coffee riot... you won't catch it in the filter, yet it is kind of
still the same thread...
no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, no matter what you
demand others do, NO filter is going to catch 100 % of what one wants
100% of the time. I use thunderbird for my e mail and even on this
list, I have all the homeroast posts sent to one folder but a few
individuals when they post, no matter what they post.. it always shows
up in the main inbox no matter what I do or try to filter.... go figure...
another thing you can do is, G mail will let you move posts from folder
to folder right?
I believe it will also let you make 'rules' or apply filters to folders
if this is correct then get a mail that snuck past your filter, put it
in a folder somewhere, and run a filter on it, if it doesn't work, tweak
the filter a bit until it catches it.
I am not an expert at G mail but from what others have posted on the
list, there are some folks out there who are real sharp with that
program.. Perhaps one of them will speak up, or you can scan archives
and see which ones are the genius' and ask them offlist to help you set
your g mail up more efficiently.
