Dealing with spam...

2010-07-07

Annoyed by all the spam you've been getting?  So are we.  That's why we've began implementing more aggressive measures recently.  The spam messages slipping through have few of the identifying characteristics of older spam, the spam you used to get.  This is a new type of spam.  A filtering program has a tough time distinguishing it from legitimate mail; spammers are getting smarter.  As a response, we're racheting up the filtering a notch or two to deal with this type of spam, by creating custom-tailored, content-based tests.  Legitimate mail should be exempt from these filters, unless they mention Rolex watches, Viagra, Ambien, Valium, Cialis, etc.  That's our primary concern -- making sure legitimate mail is delivered.
