It depends on which version of Outlook you are using - Outlook 98 doesn't
have all of the filter conditions that Outlook 2000 has, but you should be
able to filter on a specific word in the message header. You need to click
the Orgainze button, then click Rules Wizard, and work through the screens.
You can also filter on the senders address, which is different from the From
field - my rule filters on techwr-l in the senders address.
