Create a Mail rule to block the w32.sobig.f spam worm
Authored by: JJ on Aug 20, '03 06:45:02PM

Apart from my email program not being able to filter on "Subect"...

if you filter any Subject ending on "Details", then also checking for Subjects ending on "My details" and "Your details" is redundant, unless the filter is case-sensitive

Checking this in combination with the names of the attachment this virus uses would also be much safer

Say you didn't want to filter out emails with "other details", then setting a rule for subjects ending in "details" would not work: it would filter the good along with the bad.
