Its simple, in your filter setup select "content-type" select "contains" and
select "text/html" then under actions select "move into folder" and put "Local
Folders/trash" in the remaining requester box and your html messages are all
automatically shifted to the trash folder without you even have to look at
them! Actually it is the exact same filter setup I used for years in YAM on my
Amiga bbs computer. As to top posting if it is done I just delete that
message without spending any more of my time with it. I never really looked
into try to make a filter to do it, however if the same person insists on
continuing that action I do add the person's email address to my twit filter
which does the same as the html one and I never see posts for him again
