Spaceman pointed me to a site that told me how to fiddle around with Agent so that a filter was created that only allowed messages with [RAME] or (rame) or variations thereof into your window. Here's a better way of doing it:

  1. Open Agent and go to Subscribed Groups.
  2. Click on rec.arts.movies.erotica.
  3. Click on Window at the top of the screen.
  4. A menu will open. Click on Open Usenet Filters.
  5. Click on Filter at the top of the screen.
  6. A menu will open. Click on Add Kill Filter.
  7. A box will open called Add Usenet Filter. There is a large white space within the box called Filter Expression.
  8. Type within that box the following five words (without the 9.) just as you see them below:
  9. not RAME* and not rame*
  10. Do not put [ ] or ( ) around any of the words, and be sure to have the two *s there.
  11. Check the box below that says Apply filter to group immediately.
  12. Leave the Priority set at 400.
  13. Make sure that the white circle under Kill Action labeled Delete is chosen.
  14. Make sure that the white circle under Scope labeled Group: rec.arts.movies.erotica is chosen.
  15. Click OK

This works, I know, for Agent 2.0. It probably ought to be about the same for earlier versions of Agent, and for Free Agent. Apparently there's a new Agent 3.0 that's just come out. It will probably be about the same there too.

Outlook Express you need to set up a VIEW, a filter won't do it.

With RAME open, do the following:

  1. Click View > Current View > Define Views
  2. Click NEW
  3. Box 1: Check off "Where the subject line contains specific words"
  4. Box 2: Click "contains specific words" to open a window, in the "specific words or phrase" box, type RAME and then press the ADD button, then OK
  5. Box 2: Click "Show/Hide" and choose "Show messages" from the pop-up box, click OK
  6. Box 3: Name of the View: Show RAME
  7. Click OK
  8. Click Apply View then "Currently Selected Folder" from the pop-up, click OK on the two boxes.

Then, in the future, if OE forgets to apply the filter, click View > Current View > Show RAME to re-apply it.
