Re: Spam

Bob has replied to a very similar question to this over in this thread. The spam filter is working, however at this time of the year there is always an increase in the amount of spam being delivered.

Re: Spam

SPAM comes in waves.
Its a bit like weather fronts coming in from the Atlantic. Sometimes you get sunshine, sometime a bit of drizzel and sometimes a complete downpour.
I have noticed that weekends tend to be a bit heavier. I surmise it may be because more people at home are online and so the botnets running on compromised machines are bigger.

Re: Spam

I'd prefer a warm front myself.....
Only 15 spams so far today, and funnily enough I need an extension as well....

Re: Spam

Just the 23 today, not a great deal I know but it is a 4 fold increase. If I was cynical I would say it was a scam to move us to the new spam filter, but I know PN wouldn't do such a thing (Just joking.....Honest).
