You could never edit filters.txt.

I think that under Outlook 98 editing filters.txt may have changed the
filter, but by the time 2000 rolled around that was no longer the case.

You're right.  It was a case of mistaken identity.

My understanding is that the document is only there to show what the
rule set is. Everything I could find says that Outlook does not actually
use the document to process the rule set. What they recommended was that
if the built in rules did not meet your needs, that you should disable
the built in feature and make your own rules.

If you've got it working by modifying filters.txt, please let me know.
I'm really curious.

Tom.

I removed the Subject contains "Advertisement" rule and it appears that
it
is accepting the changes using the turn junk gray option.

Look for a file named filters.txt (probably in c:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\1033

That file contains the criteria. It's there for your edification. You
cannot modify the rules.

Subject: Built-in filter criteria for junk email (O2002)

Does anybody know where I can find the built-in criteria Outlook 2002
uses
to filter junk email?  I can guess what it uses (i.e.. Advertisement in
the
subject, etc.) but I would like to have the hidden agenda.

OL2002: The Junk Sender's Rule Incorrectly Filters Messages 
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN;q298734
States:
This behavior occurs because a property of the message that you do not
wanted filtered matches one of the built-in filter criteria for the Junk
Sender's & Adult Content rules. You cannot edit this built-in criteria.
