Spam keeps getting through

I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

I’ve been getting a ton of spam from different addresses trying to sell me stock for USGT. I’ve tried to train spam sieve to recognize these as spam. No help.
Then went into the blocklist and created two rules:
subject contains USGT
body (any text part) contains USGT

I still get this spam pouring in.

I’m at a loss as to what to do next.

It sounds like something isn’t set up properly in your mail program. Please see Why is SpamSieve not catching my spam? and/or What information should I include when I report a problem?.

Oh, I found the problem. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. SpamSieve was not catching my spam as I had not set up that rule for it to look at all emails. Once I did that it appeared to start working properly. Thanks! Max
