New spam menace with numbers at the end of the subject

Postby surf » Sat May 16, 2015 10:55 am

Hi All,

Just wondered if I'm not alone in suffering from this new menace over the last few weeks..

We've been deluged by spam with numbers at the end of the subject which are getting straight past mailcleaner and wondered if there is a way of stopping it.. subjects such as:

Subject: "Mayo Clinic Review: Real diabetes cure found - Review No. 9596382"
Subject: "Brand New iPad Widget, Limited Time Only --4656154"

Quite often they are putting dates or times in the past too so backfilling inboxes.

Wondering if anyone else is suffering from this and can anyone recommend how to fight this with Mailcleaner as I've not worked out how to do it.

Thanks & Regards
Mark

Hi Mark,

check out my post: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2228

I was not able to get the filters to do a good job with this, so I started blocking the IP Blocks from the offending servers. works like a charm and now my mail is clean with zero fals positives.

Let me know if my list solves your spam problems.
