    Anyone know how in mail to right a rule set thet deletes email from all domains except a few such as com, org, net, or gov?

    Tons of spam are showing up from all the funky new domains. It gets old specifying every domain to delete.

    Create a new mailbox, call it "spambucket"
    At the end of your list of rules, create a new (last) rule:

    If [ ANY ]
    "From" "ends with" ".com"
    "From" "ends with" ".net"
    "From" "ends with" ".org"
    Action
    "Stop evaluating rules"

    Then create a new "last" rule, after all others:

    If [ ANY ]
    "Sender is not in my contacts"
    Action
    "Move Message" "spambucket"

    Let that evaluate new messages for awhile, adjust appropriately, and when you are
    comfortable, only then change the Action to "Delete Message"

    Make two rules:
    Rule1:

    Rule 2

    You can of course change the conditions and actions to suit, but just make sure Rule1 includes the final action to "Stop evaluating rules", otherwise all your mail will end up in the Spam folder.
