This is missing the option "filtered". I seem to get mostly viagra type spam at work, where we don't have filters.. Narry a one, they installed one once as a test, complained it needed too much intervention to sort out the false positives, and uninstalled it again, so much for that. At home the only ones that trickle through are mortgage type offers theses days (with the significant words full of spaces).

I'm running 4 levels of filter.. a fetchmail preconnect deletes mail from certain countries (using the IP of the first received part) at the server (sorry, if you're from Korea or China, send me email to another of my addresses). Also all mail that is for other usernames on my domain, that dont actually exists as users or aliases on the system (one of these days, I'll figure out who "Castaway|castaway" is.. ). After that, its 3 levels of SpamAssassin, at 10, 5 and 2. I could probably merge the first two, I dont think Ive ever seen legit mail there since I started. Level 2 is fairly new, and catches both, so I check it often (still 95% spam though)..

Ah the joys of email.. I've had this address 10 years, and I'm not about to stop just for some stoopid spammers..

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
