Hi All,
I simply need to drop replies and forwards (RE: & FW:) that do not have any text that follows the RE: & FW: 's.
I have created incoming content filter rules, and they work for "empty subject" mails. When the subject is RE: and then blank, I want to drop these types of mails also.....

try dropping all subject values like those with a regex of:

(?i)^(re:|fw:)$

** don't forget to use subject 'equals'.

check out bounce verification too for empty 'from' addresses to stop bounce storms and OOO reply issues and so on...

I'd use:

(?i)^(re:|fw:)\s*$

The "\s*" will match any trailing whitespace.
