I first download the body, then run all the rules.

I think, it will be a good idea to check immediately the body, but I don't know whether INDY allows this... :?

Hi, first post here. Renier, thank you for such a fine piece of software!

I would disagree w/ homaquebec here. I don't see this as an either / or choice. Users who don't want / need / can't grok reg exp can use PopTray w/o using them. Adding the *ability* to filter doesn't make PT any slower or less useful to people who aren't going to use reg exps. IE: they haven't lost anything at all that I can see.

Meanwhile those of us that *do* value the ability to more effectively filter our mail get to struggle w/ the Wonderful World of Regular Expressions.

It may not be win/win but it seems to be a least a win/neutral situation.

As some other forum members already wrote, I think that the regex feature is an extra feature of PopTray : those who don't know how to use this feature may still go on using PopTray with much benefit, for those who know a little bit or more about regex, it definitely enables to tune ones filtering conditions very accurately. Thanks Renier for having decided to implement that, and thanks to Vitoco for the regex guide.
