Thought I would start a separate thread from the other one (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=40&topicid=193621)

 

Since those "Document 2" ones started in mid-March I've had a huge surge in SPAM on my ihug email address.

 

Historically the ihug/Vodafone SPAM filter has been great. Does anyone know what would have changed to allow so much SPAM through all of a sudden?

 

Examples in my inbox today;

 

  • Everyone has a degree but not everyone has experience like yours and the Degree to match
  • Try out how your life can change with increased libido!
  • Have you ever noticed how natural aphrodisiacs influence your mood?

They are obviously SPAM so I don't know why these wouldn't get flagged?

Hi

 

Apologies for the hassle, we're aware of the sudden increase in spam and are working on a solution. I'll update as soon as I hear more but it is a high priority.

 

Cheers

 

Mike

Thanks Mike, all good, appreciate the response. My wife was asking so at least I can tell her you are working on it!

We are seeing this across our entire customer base. (Well those without good spam filters). 

 

It's not limited to VF Connections.

Something appears to have been implemented for ihug, I received zero spams last night

 

(down from an average of 20)...... or... I was just lucky.

 

 

 

Cheers,
