this filtering supposedly works in Eudora as well. I'm having a go 
since you brought it up. I looked at one of the more recent ones that 
are mixed color courier font stock info, and it has "multipart/mixed" 
. I added that to the filter as well in the "any headers" qualifier. 
It may trash embedded graphics email that I want to get, though, so 
this may be a risky strategy. I know, I know, but I have family who 
aren't quite cluey on this stuff and do send email with embedded 
graphics. What's a person to do?
