I've read about the kill file in Souper and I know I must have one
because I have a junk newsgroup, however I can't find _any_ reference
to *kill* or *junk*.
Can anyone shed any light as to where this kill file should be.
Also is it possible to set up an imaginary newsgroup eg *personal*,
that would detect any messages in all the newsgroups that I download
that have my name in the body of the message.
This would be very handy as if I post an article and a reply comes
along posted in a newsgroup my name would usually be quoted in the
article and thus end up in the *personal* newsgeoup, so I would
naturally read that newsgroup first.
Is this possible.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
