      Re: Purported from CNN

      I am getting one every 10 minutes or so. I have changed my mail server filter to just bin them before downloading when looking at the headers, any CNN ones get removed.

      Again, they are not comming through from sky or my website email but are arriving via an old Freeserve account (as does 95% of my spam mail)

      If this image is not here, my net connection has gone down.. Please hit it with a hammer

      Re: Purported from CNN

      Ive not had this problem on my own mailserver.

      I have to admit I have enforced some pretty stiff spam rules, but not to my detriment. I think ive only ever had 3 emails marked as spam that were not.

      So no I havent seen any CNN ones, but I have seen 2 or 3 UPS ones floating about.

      I am now getting hammered with MSN News type spam emails now. The CNN ones seem to have died off.

      Re: Purported from CNN

      Are you using any spam filtering servers? Eg Spamcop ?

      My junk folder is empty.

      The UPS emails come with an email virus, as my NIS 2008, has blocked the virus involved.

      Yes, MSN news emails are now appearing, but the CNN, are still coming through here.

      Re: Purported from CNN

      Nopes,

      Im still not seeing any CNN or MSN ones.

      Funny really, Tag score is set at 5.0, block score set at 9.5.

      I use zen spamhaus and spamcop as my internet blacklists. Spam assassin is configured and running and the best one of all. SMTP greeting is delayed by 20 seconds which sifts out most of the bogus emails.
      Regards,

      SpamAssasin is what the SMTP server uses for our domain emails. They do get tagged as SPAM-MED: and then immediately downloaded into my Junk email folder, but there is a definite increase over the last 48 hours for the MSN ones.

      Re: Purported from CNN

      Ah right,

      Well depending on the score with me depends on if it is dropped (ie not even put into the junk folder).

      Again as I say, this is and has been working well for me
