Is there any way to make the keyword search not break down other words ie...

I am blocking the word rape but it also blocks the word grape.

thanks for any help you can give

I've been using keywords with quotes and they seem to work fine. I'm not sure what the filter does with the quotes around the phrase. So, following this, try:

"rape " or " rape"

However, trailing spaces have been the subject of many other posts.

My multiple word strings have worked with quotes.

I found that putting a comma after the keyword seems to work also. I had a client that has a domain name that was blocked by the keyword anal and his domain name had the word analysis in it. After I put a comma after anal his mail would get to him.

You can also try adding a leading space.

so it's " rape"  instead of "rape"

To MarvinFS
We don't need jerks like you insulting people trying to either learn or resolve problems. While your regex point is valid, your "RTFM" is not.

Hi Marvin,
No problem, I'm sorry I flew off the handle at you. I guess I was still half asleep when I got the post and in a bad mood.

I don't believe Clayton's problem is specifically addressed in the manual.  However if others have a suggestion that may solve his problem, what do you have against users helping other users?   Your RTFM comment certainly adds nothing of value to this Support Forum.

Clayton,

Currently the filter search looks for the keyword(s) in any part of the text, so it will not distinguish "r a p e" from "g r a p e". The best option to avoid false positives is to enter more than one keyword on a single line, thus forcing a match on more than one word.
