Now, what you really want to do is this.
Authored by: nevyn on Aug 20, '03 02:18:46PM

Now, what you really want to do is this. Make the rule have all the messages go to a specific folder. Wait for a few hours or maybe a day. You should now have about a hundred of Sobig spam mails. Quickly look through the subjects and make sure none of them are legitimate mails actually adressed to you. When done with that, select all the mails in the folder.

Now.

Press, "Mark this as Junk". (or through context menu).

You should now never have any problems with Sobig spam again.

(Yes, all 150 mails I've gotten past 24 hours have came from the same machine. Tried reporting it to the ISP, but they weren't listening.)
