If anyone made a filter to try, you shouldn't have received this mornings rendition if it worked (or theyll be in the folder you specified)

 

JBHifi.tk about 730am

I've been doing my filtering of the recent lot (the last few weeks) based on the Received headers rather than the sender address, virtually nothing much has showed up for a while now.

I was origonally trying to set up with 5 country codes they use. I could not work out an easy way. At present .tk is used but expect them to (move to .ml or bq again soon my rule  (I put in.... if the headers contain slai.win....discard.) works today  but they may change slai.win . Who knows?

I think that's almost normal for the current setup. My sister, who also has an Xtra email address, often gets a "rejected due to spammy conent" message when trying to reply to emails I've sent her. On my business mail account, which lets me monitor what's coming and going, I've seen a couple of messages from Spark (including my phone bill on one occasion) get rejected as "spam." (The only reason I've got a business mail account is that I was running my own email server at home, until the machine I was using packed a sad on me, I haven't got round to replacing it yet.)

My mate got conned here. he accepted a bonus gift from Trademe on one of these spam emails. He gave his CC as he had to pay freight, $5, it was some skin cream. They billed his CC NZ$142 though :-)    The bank are reversing it, they have a huge backlog so it will be a few weeks

 

 

 

Funny thing is they sent the cream

OK So last night, knowing we get a few in the early AM, I tested my own theory and put a custom filter for moving to the spam folder for the usual suspect domains being spoofed.

 

What happens on syncing this morning... Oh look. Moved 'Contact Gifts' without intervention at 827am.

 

Simple filter on user end, can't get it right server end for everyone. Go figure

Understand that, but if the user filter manages .tk, that means at the server end they are taking the view that every email from .tk is spam. Or am I missing something?

I have just noticed that as from about 15 May, my Spam folder is being used, so I can now see what SMX has filtered out as spam. Trouble is, it includes MightyApe, Netflix, Dominos and the High School that I get emails from

Actually maybe its when I started marking as spam, but there are MANY not spam emails in there, there is no way I put them there by mistake. In fact I haven't marked that many as spam anyway. And I cannot locate a Not Spam button
