Spam Filtering

     I am happy to report that at least one phishing scam I’ve received after installing the anti-phishing scam plugin was successfully diverted to my spam box so it is at least catching some.

     I’ve also added a botnet plugin that looks for IP’s of known botnet’s and deflects those spams to your spambox.

     Lastly, I’ve modified the spamtrap function so when you forward spam to spamtrap@eskimo.com, in addition to being applied to local Bayesian filters, it is also sent to several centralized spam blocking sites that use the information to construct RBL’s and other anti-spam measures.

     So if you receive a spam, Bounce or Forward, (Bounce is preferable if your mailer has that capability as it preserves all the original headers) to spamtrap@eskimo.com.
