View Full Version : Missing spam

06-20-2007, 05:47 AM
Spamsieve is catching almost everything on a regular basis except for a few errant emails - usually having to do with some drug. I have tried entering in the blocklist rules: Subject -> contains -> V1agra (for instance) but spam still slips through with that in the subject. Does the entire subject have to match or can spamsieve find single words in the subject - and if it can, why is it missing these few but regular spams?

Blocklist rules can match single words in the subject. If you had a blocklist rule that should have matched a message, the rule was enabled, and the message was not caught, then there might be a setup problem (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/why-is-spamsieve-not-ca) such that SpamSieve was not asked to filter that message. Another possibility is that one of SpamSieve’s filters (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/filters) above the blocklist decided that the message was good. You’d be able to see this in the log (http://c-command.com/spamsieve/manual-ah/open-log).
