At last - Kmail spam filtering - Help and a note for kde developers.

Thanks I've finally found the help file on the mail filters. It can be got to  
on my system by hitting help in the anti spam wizard and following a link to 
filters in that. Help in the configure filters window doesn't seem to offer a 
route to the same information.

Unfortunately commitments prevent me from helping for some time. One day 
maybe. There is also an issue on language skills - I have never had the time 
to get on stream with c++. Mostly assembler then C and others. This fact and 
the scripting facilities available in linux is probably what gave rise to my 
suggestion. That in any case would probably be better placed within linux 
rather than kde.

Off Topic but: For any one else who is interested in an easier route to 
writing programs for their systems the following link may be of interest. 
Basic can make an excellent scripting language too. The learning curve isn't 
too steep and a complex program will soon illustrate why structure and naming 
etc is important:

Unfortunately many of the offerings seem to be purely compiler based which 
looses some of the advantages gained from the original concept especially for 
a novice user. Syntax could be checked by simply typing the commands.
