Mail Box Dispatcher 2 - Event Conditions - Expert Mode

 

When you are editing an event in Expert mode, you setup checking conditions that must be complied with by a message. By another words, you can setup checking for two or more fields at the same time. Remember that an event fires when a message complies with ALL selected conditions.

When you are editing condition strings in Expert mode, you setup something like a template. You are able to use two special characters (wildcards) for defining a template string: ‘*’ and ‘?’. The * means "match any number of characters in this spot", and the ? wildcard means "match any character in this spot." In substance, when you select ‘Contains’ in Beginner Mode you add * to the begin and to the end of a substring. When you select ‘Is at the begin’ you add * to the end of a substring, and when you select ‘Is at the end’ you add * to the begin of a substring. Example: You need to create an event that will fire for messages with a subject that begins with FIRST, contains a word SECOND and ends with a word THIRD. The event rule string for this purpose will look as the following:
FIRST*SECOND*THIRD

You can also use another special character: ‘|’ (Vertical Bar or Pipe). It means OR and is very useful when you wish to create, say a group of your friends addresses or a group of email addreesses you don’t wish to receive messages from. This character is a delimeter between templates. Example: You need to create an event that will fire for messages that sent by support@anti-spam-tools.com, author@anti-spam-tools.com, Alex Kaul, Mail Box Dispatcher Author. The event rule string for this purpose will look as the following:
*@anti-spam-tools.com*|*Alex Kaul*|*Mail Box Dispatcher*
Comments for this template: | character separates the template into three parts. Event fires for all messages that comply with any of these parts. First part fires for messages that contain ‘@anti-spam-tools.com’, second for messages that contain ‘Alex Kaul’ and third for messages that contain ‘Mail Box Dispatcher’.
