Just recently I have had a few emails go straight to my Spamfighter folder
instead of the ELCO folder, they have come from Benoit, Lubo and Joaquim?

Hi Chas,
That's odd that they have been singled out - are they all using the same provider?

Hi Julian, Chas
I don't know but personally I haven't post in ELCO for quite a while.
Although I've posted recently to 80sCool about my beam problem.
Chas, is the mail tagged as spam the one about the beams from 80sCool?
Regards
Joaquim

Hi Joaquim,
I can't remember now, and it's been deleted, but that sounds familiar.

Ah guys
I suppose maybe if I was to buy all there stuff I would be 10 times the size
of a horse if you know what I mean and sure then the cruiser would be a
tight fit. Is there no way to stop these e-mails, its just a little arkward
if the kits read the titles never mind the content before I get to delete
them.

Hi guys,
I have found a way to improve spam filtering by using two mail
providers pursuing good anti-spam policies. I receive all mail in one
filtered mailbox using a public email address, then have it forwarded
to another (private) address for final filtering. Gmail is quite good
at filtering spam and allows you to create an unlimited number of own
filters, also to stop email that is not spam but you do not want to
stuff your private mailbox.

Emails can be identified as spam in a number of different way with different anti-spam software using different techniques.
Most anti-spam software enables you to create filters to let legitimate email through - setup a filter to let all emails with ELCO in the subject line - this should let all the list traffic come though OK.
Whilst you are at it configure your mail software to move the list emails into their own folder as well by also filtering on ELCO in the subject line- it makes it easier to manage all the messages.
It just goes to show that you should never just delete all your spam - you can often get 'false positives' - I.e. Legitmate messages identified as spam.

I am actually getting very little spam, it's just that some messages which
are definitely NOT spam are being blocked by my Spamfighter and I don't know
why, there is nothing in them that seems to be causing it.

Using content filters is the least effective technique available. The most
effective technique is for whoever operates the mail server for your email
address to examine the incomming connection carefully and reject none
standards compliant connections, followed by rejection of un-authenticated
dynamic IP address connections, grey listing and as the last resort
content filtering. Almost all spam get's to you by the spammers looking up
the MX record for your email domain and connecting directly to the mail
server and that's the best time to deal with the problem.
Also, if you have your own domain, don't use a catch all email address so
that you get anything sent to your domain, just use specific addresses.
For a little more effort ISP's could eliminate most spam and free up a lot
of bandwidth. If more people complained to them perhaps they'd do
something about it.
By way of example, in the last 24 hour period my mail server passed 344
emails to user mail box's, 11 of which it felt were probably spam based on
content. Another 2813 emails it rejected without ever recieving the email
content because the connection was not standards compliant or was from an
un-authenticated dynamic IP address. Normally those 2813 emails would end
up in users mail box's and they're all spam.
I wonder how many more references I can make to spam before John puts me
in his spam bin ;-)
Best regards,
Jon.

May be a silly suggestion, but it could be the trailing underscores in
Niall's "name". At least one aspect of spam filtering involves
scanning message headers and "from" fields for dubious characters.
On a different note I was dead grateful for the LC this am: Devon is
currently under water with lots of flooded roads and dead cars
pretending to be boats.
We just ploughed through it all without any drama, although the brakes
didn't work too well afterwards!
