There are times when I think SpamSieve is being smarter than I want it to be.
For example, I don’t want email names added to my whitelist. First because I get massive named blasts from my office — I want to just create one rule (
ends with @roadscholar.org
) and have it go through. I don’t want a separate rule for every email and every name in the company who may have been on an email once.
Similarly on personal correspondence, a rule for firstname.lastname@example.org makes sense to me, but I don’t want to have a separate rule for Jobob McEmailer as a name rule.
Is there a way to get the automated system to only build rules for addresses and not names?
Also, is there a way to not create a new rule if one already applies? (I know that makes weighting more difficult)
Lastly, what is the encoding of the database? I’ve seen a few cases where unicode names are stored incorrectly. Is that a case of an issue inside the app or the MUA?
