Is there a way to filter Crossposting using (ahem) OE I don't Necessarily
want to block those NG directly.
Oh yeah how about Wild Cards I seem to be doing something wrong It would
help If I could Wildcard Block via some of the E-mail Address (I mean
@Cumsuck is pretty obvious)

As David has posted repeatedly, set up nfilter. It can filter for any
number of crosspostings. For example:
* drop xref:*:*:*:*This filter will drop any posts with three or more
newsgroups in the XRef line.
It works with OE.

It does not work on my PC. I have configured according
the instructions in the postings of this newsgroup.
The problem may relate to the use of a proxy server,
which nfilter should not use and which I have to
tell Mozilla to not use to access the news server.
Does a way exist to determine if nfilter uses the
proxy server? Does a way exist to tell it not to
use the proxy server? Does this matter or should I
look elsewhere for a solution?

nfilter is a proxy server. Your news client should be configured to

If you currently have Mozilla configured to talk directly to your news
server, there should be no problems in using nfilter if you follow the
configuration instructions on the nfilter site.
It SAYS it works with Netscape and Agent. Doesn't say anything about other
news apps, except to say it won't work with AOL.
I would suspect (based on what I know of how it works, which may well be
flawed) that it will work fine with any news application that does a
standard NNTP download. It acts as a proxy news server between your app and
your ISP's news server. Basically, you configure nfilter to look to your
news server, and your news app to point to "localhost" (net-geek for "my
machine"). Simple as that! Then stick in the nfilters that David has been
sending out, and you're good to go.
