I keep getting spam with quite good From: addresses and subjects with a body like this:

They seem to elude bogofilter (at school) and spamassasin (on my server). I guess they are designed to mess up wordlists.

Considering the amount of “stop spam” posts on Debian devel, and the demand to get rid of spam, shouldn’t there be a policy, workgroup or mailing list for dealing with this particular problem? I don’t know where to go for debian-specific information to resolve this. After all there is debian-firewall and debian-isp mailing lists. Perhaps a list debian-mail for mail specific issues.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
