Hello! This is my first time posting on this forum (first time posting on a forum asking for technical help at all actually)…
I have searched for a similar topic before posting by the way :)
I am running a SBS 2008 box with Server 2007.
Two users in my Domain were receiving heavy amounts of spam before I adjusted the Spam Filter. I created a list of common words used in the spam e-mails and added them to the list of Custom Blocked Words. One of the users has reported much less spam but I have personally observed the other user receiving 60+ spam e-mails a day.
The thing that has me puzzled is that the majority of spam this user is receiving contains words that are in the Custom Blocked Words filter…
If I send the user an e-mail from my personal e-mail with words from the Custom Blocked Words (in either the subject or body) it is properly rejected and I am notified.
How come my e-mails are blocked but the real spam is not?
I appreciate any help or education on the subject. Thanks!
