We just transferred over to Dreamhost. The email spam filters are horrible in Dreamhost. I feel like I’m in the stone age. Our old host’s spam filters were far superior (unfortunately that’s about all they did right) and we didn’t even need to set thresholds and all that nonsense.
And what’s up with using Squirrel Mail? Please! What good is it? Wow, you can blacklist from the Junk Folder but you can’t blacklist from the inbox where most of the spam is ending up anyway. It’s pathetic to be using this method in the 21st century.
So far I’ve liked Dreamhost, but this spam filter thing is going to drive me to another host that has a more modern and sophisticated approach to handling spam.
Dreamhost, are you working on implementing better spam filters? I hope. I hope.
Below is just one page of what’s ending up in an inbox with aggressive spam filtering on. Every one of these is Spam. And the worst part is many legitimate emails from my co-workers are ending up in the Junk folder.
