I’ve got an idea how to automate moving spam from the inbox direct to the delete folder:
I operate a publishing company with multiple email addresses. Every day, spam messages flood in with the “same” spam message going to multiple email addresses.
Doesn’t this mean, this is a way of identifying spam> Isn’t this an issue: correctly identifying a spam message.
A genuine message would not be emailed to 3+ email addresses.
Logic says: parse the details of each message to a database, then enable rules to delete messages that match the details in the db. In other words, if the details of an email are already in the database, then delete the new one because its already been received.
- S1: Sender name
- S2: Sender email address
- E1: Email subject
- Identify spam = message arrives 3+ times
- Copy details (s1s2e1) to table: spam######
- Enable send and receive
- Run clean-up (after receive complete)
- Delete messages match (s1s2e1)
