During the 5 years I’ve been using SpamSieve, it’s done a fabulous job, diverting hundreds of messages a day to the Spam folder. Handling the 4 or 5 it didn’t catch each day has been no problem.
But starting a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been using the Train as Spam keyboard shortcut on 10 to 20 messages a day. There are a handful of common themes of this new, uncaught spam:
- Find a lawyer
- Get a dental implant
- Buy an SUV
- Get alcohol treatment
- Get a VOIP phone
- Earn a degree online
Often these message will arrive in groups of 2 to 5 similar messages with different senders and slightly different subject lines.
Are others seeing a similar increase in uncaught spam?
