Re: Where did SpamGuard go?

Well then if that's the case then spamguard plus is really not learning anything at all. It seems its always the same weight loss spam with different female celebrities names attached to it. Mark as spam, mark as spam, mark as spam, etc. they still keep coming. Added a filter manually to send anything with weight loss in the subject to spam, but that hardly is going to help as spam is always evolving into different formats.

Re: Where did SpamGuard go?

That is very true. These spam places likely have people doing the very same thing, working at ways to bypass the filters.
Spelling Viagra, or similar, adding periods I between things.

The BIG one now, is them using images. Put you spam message as a image, that is a link. Guess what? A spam filter can't search the text in the image, so it essentially bypasses the filters. 😞

Re: Where did SpamGuard go?

… and what about addresses and subject lines? 

 

I also keep marking things as spam and keep getting them anyhow. This includes some things that are probably legitimate businesses (e.g. e-Harmony; ADT), but I'm not interested in. I don't think they use images. The spam filter doesn't seem to learn anything no matter how many times I mark them as spam. Is this because they are paying customers and Rogers has given them guaranteed access with their blessing? 

 

On the flip side, some things I get and want, and have marked as not spam, keep eventually finding their way into the spam folder.

Re: Where did SpamGuard go?

I am not sure HOW many times its suposed to take to have it figure a patern... doing just once.. would make it way to senstive.  I know our one at work here, takes 10+ sometimes.. depends on the logic, etc, behind it.

I have no doubt the spamguard is working.. it blocks about 40-50 spam for me a day.. but about 10 sneek through.

 

I originaly had my WoW game set up to mail my rogers email.. suddenly i stoped getting them into my inbox (both the FAKE phishing things) and the real ones.  I had NEVER marked any as spam..  but either collectively between other users, enough may have that it changes the rules across the board.  For those ones, i had to make rules to specificaly push them back to my inbox.
