I was more looking for a way to do it in the GMail web site, but it
doesn't seem to be obvious if possible at all.
I don't want to delete them since I never delete anything, except spam
and things like that, because I want to be able to search in all email
I've ever reveived. I just want to filter some kinds of email out from
my inbox, but that's not harder to do than to delete them, so that
small part of the whole thing is not a problem. The problem is to
determine which messages are top posted and which are HTML and doing
it using the GMail filter feature.

Kind regards
