How is the best way to get Newsbin to ignore text messages?

Postby eclapwannabe » Tue Dec 11, 2018 6:08 am

You know I download a lot of things the old way.
I just find the messages individual files unless they are group by Newsbin or rar
I am finding re: files (which ends up as a text message) also being downloaded.
As simplistic as X-news is it just ignores re files and does not download them.
I want to know the easiest way to accomplish that in Newsbin.

Okay I just listed it as a filter (Reject if >Subject Contains> Re:
But will that work in the download headers mode or does that only work when I am getting new headers?

TIA

How are they getting into the download list? Size filters would probably work.

That sounds good. My plan is not working still downloading text messages setting it up as a filter is not working.
