Filter Files

Postby chuck52usa » Fri Jan 11, 2019 8:37 pm

How do I create a filter to reject all file names like this? 022.zip-181.jpg I tried the filter ( Reject if Filename Contains [.]zip- ) However, the filenames are still being downloaded.

Thanks for Help! :(

022.zip-181.jpg

"[0-9]{2,3}[.]zip[-][0-9]{2,3}[.]jpg"

Would probably work. It means "2-3 numbers, 0-9 followed by a ".zip" a "-" and 2-3 numbers .jpg.

1 - File filters apply after download.

2 - If these files are inside RARS, you need to use the "Post unrar" filter.

3 - If you don't want to see these files in headers, you'd need to add this filter to a subject filter.

If you explain in a bit more detail about where these files come from and how you're downloading them, I could probably be more helpful.
