back again today with country code .tk  (2) and slai.win, same old stuff. Quantity is less though. Other bad addresses with common  country codes have stopped.

Likewise with receipt of two with the "received from slai.win" bit. Mildly surprised but not entirely unexpected, since I thought I'd set up a filter rule to send them on their merry way, and the filters sometimes seem a little bit buggy.

compare gmail to xtramail.

 

gmail puts spam into your webmail spam box.

 

It does not download to my home desktop, laptop, or mobile phone.

 

Now look at xtra.

 

they put everything into my webmail inbox.

 

This now costs me money to download to my laptop and mobile.

 

what now? disconnect account from laptop and mobile with a message from  my home desktop is an option.

How much does it cost you. Give us a $ figure of how much it costs to sync so little data.
Irrational ranting really doesnt help anything .

 

If so unhappy with a FREE service , the obvious solution is to move to another email provider.

I think you are the irrational one ranting when you either don't receive this spam and don't  rely on mobile communications. Time wasted is money lost especially when you are away from home. This year by may this spam had risen to up to 20 a day  most of which could be recognized by a 10 year old.

 

xtra mail started as a Telecom  in house BIS project .That's when I started. This expanded to other Telecom staff before being launched to the public.

 

I have remained loyal ever since with the same email address and just want service to be restored properly.

Ive been with Xtra forever as well. When with Yahoo I marked spam as spam, it trained to that very well. These new ones I am doing the same they are dropping off a lot. Mark it, and give it some time

received this via facebook today. I see others complaining also. Hopefully the noise suggesting nothing is wrong will take notice.

Hi George, We are continuing the work with our email partners to reduce the amount of spam hitting your inbox and hope to have made some significant inroads in the next few weeks, but in the meantime please bear with us and continue to use the Mark as Spam tool to move unwanted messages into the spam folder. Cheers ^Aidan

those highlighted country codes plus the IP lookup address's showing coming from a common block in Manchester UK brings more questions. Note the explosion in domain names in the highlighted countries , we are only seeing a very small fraction of these.

 

Is it only spark(xtra) getting hit?

 

or is it only Spark without a fix in place?

I'm getting heaps of these, too. purporting to come from Countdown, Pak'n'Save, Amazon, Caltex, Farmers, and some for free petrol vouchers, flights, etc.

 

I began blocking them by clicking the spam button, but it doesn't seem to make much difference now.

4x DevCapsule Ltd / SLAI.WIN 

 

 

I've had several of these over the last few weeks. Apart from a couple that somehow slipped through, they've all but gone since I set up a filter based on Received headers that "rejects" them with a reason, to the effect of "Go away." (Based on informal tests I've done, I suspect "bounce" might be a better way of describing the filter action than "reject" which I associate with what happens during the SMTP transaction.)

4 must be the magic number. Same today (and the ol M_jackson again now)

 

And that's what I can't get over. If we can put a user level filter in that works, how the hell is the server so confused as to do the same with it pre-delivery.

 

Especially when they still have "616 Corporate Way" as a 2nd or 3rd level verification check available.

exactly. I see now that Morilla thunderbird puts them straight into junk without me doing anything.

 

look at this sequence of events.

 

email placed in webmail .

 

notification on mobile devices and delivery is impressively quick.

 

note the only options in samsung (and other) android phones in spam is block by domain name. pop3 or IMAP same result.Domain names for this spam may change daily.

 

your client email check for new mail picks up and does local rules etc.

 

No amount of rules or fiddling on my part will beat the mobile notification and delivery process.

 

does that make sense?

Not exactly. As if you add a rule on the webmail, it's stored serverside and deals to it instead of actually delivering to the inbox ala POP and or device. Including moving it to the appropriate folder for IMAP to remain syncronised.
