Hello

Does anyone else notice that the Xnet SPAM filters seem to let a lot of obvious SPAM through e.g. SPAM with the word Viagra in the title ?

Note I use @xnet.co.nz addresses

View the headers of your emails, it should tell you what scanner they are using.  I'm curious to know.

I've had an @xnet.co.nz address for about a year now and have only received one or two spam emails over that time.

That is about the same as me, I have only got about 2 pieces of spam, in all my time with xnet and they were blocked at webmail
