Filter ((

Postby deebee » Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:52 pm

I need to create a filter based on the From: field
teevee@4u.tv (teevee) is valid while teevee@4u.tv ((teevee)) is invalid
Can't figure out how to filter out the second one without it filtering out the first one.

Thanks in advance

[(]{2}teevee[)]{2}

Would probably do it. It means "two parens to start, "teevee" two parens to close"

You have to escape the parens because they have a special meaning in the filter language (regular expressions).

Right click "Delete all Posts by Poster" should kill them, too but, till you download new headers.

Hi. Does this process also apply with the current version? I think I'm missing something here.
