Info Tld And Spam


Recommended Posts

Do you have your default email set to :fail:


That will cut down on a lot of spam alone.


Hi Bruce,


I do. Additionally, it's set to "Discard with error to sender". It's about 4 to 5 emails a day to the one account. The common thread (so far) has been that it's all coming from the .info TLD. The more I'm looking into the tools available to me, it's looking like I'm going to have to resort to account level filtering. I had thought to write a rule along the lines of "If from *.info, put SPAM in subject line". Any tips with that ?

I was a bit off. I had meant user account filtering. I created a rule where if "From" contains "*.info" discard message. When I tested the filter, using the Filter Test" it said "normal delivery occurred". I'll leave the rule in and see what happens.

Good idea on the Spam score. I went back and reviewed headers for the four messages received since 8/18/2008, X-Spam-Score:



I've set it to 4 at this time. I'll let everyone know results in near future. Thanks!

Update. I think dropping the Spam score to 4 did work. Reviewing the X-Spam-Score for the 2 messages received today: 2.1 and 1.6. As for the rule, it did not seem to work as both these came from the *.info TLD. In reading, there are a few legitimate dot info sites out there. I'm removing the rule, and will let my email client direct it to a local folder. At which point, glance over them and move on. Thanks for the help everyone.
