    1414 * Create the initial rules for your language filter
    1515  * Give your filter a descriptive name
    16   * Indicate that all the rules must match for the filter to take affect
     16  * Indicate that any of the rules must match for the filter to take affect
    1717  * The first drop down shows you the available headers you can match on. Since "X-Spam-Language" is not one of them, select "..." instead and then type in: X-Spam-Language (make sure there are no typos!)
    18   * Indicate that you want to move the message to your Junk folder if this header does not contain the word "en"
    19 [[Image(filter-messages-without-en.png)]]
    20  * Add two more rules to ensure we don't accidentally filter out messages you want
    21   * Add a rule to indicate that the X-Spam-Language header must exist. This header is only added to messages that are processed by our spam filter. Some messages are skipped, for example if they are sent by another MF/PL member or if they are very large.
    22   * Add a rule to indicate that the value of the X-Spam-Language header should not be empty. Language detection is guess work and if our software is not sure what the language is, it will leave this header empty. That can happen if the email message is very short or contains a lot of garbage text.
     18  * Indicate that you want to move the message to your Junk folder if this header contains the word "fr"
     19  * Click the Plus button to add more rules. Add a rule for everyone language that you want filtered.
     20  * In the example below, we filter for french, russion and chinese.

    25 Once you are done, all messages that match will automatically be put in your Junk/Spam folder if they are not in english, even if our spam detector fails to detect them as spam.
     23Once you are done, all messages that match will automatically be put in your Junk/Spam folder if they match one of your chosen languages, even if our spam detector fails to detect them as spam.
