This a continuation of a conversation from the “moving SpamSieve” thread.
We all know that a favorite tactic of spammers is to send mail that claims to be from your own address. And yes, my address is on my card in Address Book.
Yet every day I come in to find plenty of spam from “Viagra Official Store” in my In box, despite training SpamSieve on essentially identical messages.
Given that this is a well known spamming tactic, I don’t see how it makes sense for SpamSieve to ignore messages from your address when
The “from” string contains neither your name nor other identifying information from the very Address Book card that contains the E-mail address that SpamSieve used to approve the message.
The “from” string includes clearly spammy content.
SpamSieve has been trained on similar messages from your E-mail address.
