How to automatically update Declude content filters

If you would like to configure Declude to automatically update it's content filters every day (as new updates are available), take the following steps:

1.) Visit http://mailsbestfriend.com/downloads

2.) Scroll to Scripts section and download the "Declude Filter Updates" script

3.) Scroll to the Declude Miscellaneous section and download "wget"

4.) Create a folder inside of your Declude directory called "Scripts" and move both files to the directory

5.) Open the "Declude Filter Updates" with your favorite text editor and you will see the following lines:

@ECHO OFF

wget -r -A.txt -nd --timestamping --quiet http://www.mailsbestfriend.com/downloads/Filters/ -P  C:\Smartermail\Declude\Filters

EXIT

Edit the lines as follows:

@ECHO OFF

C:\Smartermail\Declude\Scripts\wget.exe -r -A.txt -nd --timestamping --quiet http://www.mailsbestfriend.com/downloads/Filters/ -P  C:\Smartermail\Declude\Filters

EXIT

Please note that if your drive letter is not C, edit the line to match your drive letter.


6.) Set up a Windows Scheduled Task to run the script each day or night at the time of your choice.
