Filter those annoying gif spams in Mail
Authored by: arloguthrie on Oct 26, '06 09:30:13AM
Another options is to filter out anything with a "multipart/related" content-type. I've been using this hint for awhile:

I haven't seen one of those since.

I've also been using this multipart/related filter, and it's worked wonders. Previously Mail would miss about seven or eight of those a day, now I don't get any, and haven't had a single false positive.

I hadn't seen this, but seems a better approach since I had two good messages with gifs (used to decorate the message).

This approach at least gave no false positives the first time. Will have to let it run for a while.
