Got an awful lot of false positives from Orcon's spam filters and I'd like to try and tune the settings.

Does anyone know of a way to mark messages so that Orcon's DSPAM setup with learn?

Login to your account 

Go to My Services > Email >Spamblocking.  I believe that you can change setting in there..

I've got my threshold set at 13, and it's still somewhat overeager to mark emails as spam. I've found it does that periodically. My theory is that the learning filter is reset every once in a while when it starts becoming ineffective, so it needs a bit of time to retune itself to what is and isn't spam.

That sets the level at which mails are marked as spam. I've played with that and I can't get a good balance.

To avoid false positives I have to turn the spam filter off altogether. With the highest setting I still get a lot of spam that DSPAM doesn't catch.

I'd like to provide some data to help it learn and improve which doesn't appear to be an option.

Spammers are getting too cunning these days putting in random text to fool the filters.

What i'm more worried about is the sheer amount of false positives I get as soon as I enable their spam filters.

hay,


With the spam threshold 0=best. the higher the less sessitive the filtering.

Spam is part of the internet, why not just use gmail or another free 3rd party address that has world class spam blocking if you are not happy with what your ISP serves you.
