I have been setting up filters for my account. The DH spam filter works okay…just okay. I’ve found that I’ve needed about 39 filters, one for each four letter word…so far. Two questions:
(1) is this many filters typical of what it takes to do the job?
(2) Is DH “learning” from all those messages I send to “Dreamhost unblocked spam?”
Basically, the filters in the panel are designed to handle very simple functions (and to do so in a fairly crude manner). They are not designed for general purpose content filtering… They will work for stuff like “delete email that is from this person” or “delete emails containing this specific string”…
I also have around30 filters defined, all based on keywords (partly domainnames) in send-from
It works - cuts spam with 80%
I do miss a bounce feature - as it is I just delete the mails on the server
