    Mail Filters...
    So....I am having trouble with my "hard delete" filter in Mail (I'm using Leopard). This is what my filter looks like:

    If any of the following conditions are met:

    To Contains rsfc@domain.com

    Perform the following actions:

    Move Message to Trash
    Delete Message
    Stop Evaluating Rules


    But the message keeps showing up in my Spam folder instead of the Trash folder. I've also got a few other things in my "hard kill" rule such as the words "Viagra" and similar stuff, but they still get through.

    What am I doing wrong? Why aren't the rules catching these even after I have defined them?

    Why not just delete the message directly and not even have to move it to trash first? That is how mine is setup and it seems to work.

    I've tried that. What it does is, it sends it to my Spam folder instead of deleting it. I wonder whether there is some conflict with Spam Sieve?

    Do you have all the latest updates? I was having trouble with it until 10.5.2 came out.

    Also, there are at least 2 possible ways to make this work. One is under the Junk Mail Advanced settings and the other is to create a rule. Mine is setup in the Junk Mail Advanced settings.

    If you are using spam sieve maybe it's in conflict with mail. I have used SS for over a year now and let it take care of my spam. It dumps it in the spam folder and I trash it from there.

    Go to the mail pref pane and under Rules uncheck any rule that isn't spam sieve.
    I have never had to make any complicated rules for my mail I just let Spam sieve do it for me
