SpamSieve is running really, REALLY well. Only a few things are getting through… the occasional .PDF spam message, and…
Many, MANY spam messages that say they are coming from a specific contact in my address book. Let’s call him John Smith.
Every piece of email that is sent from the REAL John Smith does, indeed, come through to my inbox. However, there are about 10-20 emails a day that SAY they are coming from John Smith, but really are just random spam emails. I train all these messages as spam, however this has done nothing to lower the frequence at which these messages get through.
I imagine that other people have had somewhat similar situations, and wanted some input on how they are getting around this irritating problem.
Don’t get me wrong - SS has done an incredible job since I purchased it. Many hundreds of emails a day are being successfully found, and blocked.
