Importing the Cyrillic SPAM Filtering Rule

The Cyrillic SPAM Filtering rule will help you keep your Inbox less cluttered, by moving e-mail written in Cyrillic from the Inbox to a folder of your choice. This could be used to filter SPAM messages written in Cyrillic by moving them to the “Junk E-Mail” folder. Note that the rule will filter ALL messages that contain at least one Cyrillic character in the body or the subject, regardless of whether they are legitimate or SPAM. Follow the steps below to import this rule.

  1. Launch Outlook.
  2. From the Tools menu select Rules and Alerts. The Rules and Alerts dialog box opens.
  3. Click Options. The Options dialog box opens.
  4. Click Import Rules. The Import Rules From... dialog box opens.
  5. In the Look In... drop-down list, navigate to \\Snowleopard\Vol1\Software\Software-Windows\Quick-Fixes.
