Header Filter String

A search string that is compared to each line of the header.  As the article is downloaded, Binary Boy compares each header line to the header filter.  If any lines match, it cancels the download.    See Search Strings for further information.

This can filter out articles based on header fields other than Subject, such as From, Organization and Keywords.  For example: ("From:" & "twit@somewhere.net")

Using this command can slow response time from the server.  If you want to filter dangerous filenames such as .exe files, use the Filename Filter on the Search Strings tab instead.
