Getting Anti-Spam to work properly


#1

Hi all,

so i have been getting a lot of spam recently on one of my email addresses at my domain hosted here. I made a spammer list - yay!

I have turned on Anti-Spam in the DH panel and have it tagging spam if score is above 4.

I set it to quarantine if above 0.6 (wont do anything finer with two digits behind the decimal point - grrr).

However, much of the spam is still getting through.

The bulk of it is just not getting tagged properly.

They are usually formatted along the lines of:

Is there a way we can teach the antispam, similar to spamcop.net, rather than relying on antiquated blacklists of eMail addresses, which become moot from one night to the next?

On a separate note, has anyone managed to get the IMAP spam folder to work? Not once have i got it to move spam into it, so i reverted back to quarantine only mode.

Thanks

I’d say at least at the moment, it’s pretty broken. >_< Hopefully we’ll get a fix (or at least an improvement) sooner rather than later…
