Hi All,

I don't believe in global suppression, but on specific cases, I believe I
should be able to suppress. Let me be specific:

Some individuals post items I'm not interested in. I would like to suppress
posts by these individuals so that they don't appear on MY computer. There
is a way to do this, a year or more ago the technique was posted on this web
site. Alas, I'm a computer maladroit and have lost the procedure. Would
someone please post it. --- Thank you,

Best wishes, Jim

I'm not familiar with Outlook Express, but I suggest you look for a
menu item or preference setting called "Message Filters" or something
like that. Switching to a dedicated newsreader would likely give you
many more options, including the ability to assign numerical scores
or 'weights' to messages according to various criteria, but setting
up a basic "killfile" doesn't require more than the rudimentary
filtering capabilities most e-mail clients provide.

In Outlook Express Select Message -> Block Sender

This will block out that poster, but unfortunately not the replies to
his/her posts.
