Hi, I Have recently been receiving spam to my own inbox and some of it is obscene. I have all the spam filters turn on yet despite this there seems to some getting through that previously wasn't. What is happening, it seems to worse now than it was?
Thanks
Chris

To quote from http://www.plus.net/support/security/spam/spam_protection_guide.shtml

"- Any SPAM email you have received that has not been marked as such should be forwarded to spam@despamchecker.plus.com

Using these false positives and incorrectly tagged messages will allow us to further train the spam filter in order to increase its accuracy."

No spam filter is infallible, so with increasing amounts being addressed to us there are bound to be a few that get through.

Thanks, the thread referred to is making it clear the training is not really working. Sad
