A while ago Dave Stephens suggested “filtering” the incoming
mail to handle the high traffic of Orchid.
I would like to explain for those who don’t know how to set up
their email program how to set this option.
most of the off line line email programs have a filtering
option, (including some of the web based email services like
hotmail or yahoo)
to set a filtering rule is a 2 step operation with only 5 clicks
and very easy -
first you should create a in your email program a new folder to
contain the incoming mails from orchid. so name it Orchid or
whatever you prefer.
find out where in your email program you can set the email
create a new filtering rule: If subject line contains [Orchid]
or sender (From) contains firstname.lastname@example.org than MOVE to the
message to the new folder you have just created.
I am using Pegasus mail, which is the best (and free!) mail
program for windows 3.1/95/98/NT that can be freely downloaded
Give it a try
Hope it will make your stay with us more enjoyable
