I’ve got an idea how to automate moving spam from the inbox 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.
This means, this is a way of identifying spam which is an issue for spam software; correctly identifying a spam message.
A genuine message would not be emailed to 3+ email addresses.
Logic says: migrate the details of each message to a database, then enable rules to delete messages that match the details in the db.
- 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)
It WILL work
Then, lightning struck on this old head.
My logic is how the software SPAMfighter already works.
I suppose I am frustrated that even though SPAMfighter claims to remove 95% of spam, I still receive 100+ spam messages a day in my inbox. Having said that, thousands are moved to the SPAMfighter and Junk E-mail folders.
What I was doing was ‘deleting” spam messages when I should be ‘blocking’ them which subsequently sends the details to SPAMfighter and future messages are dealt with.
