I use Trend Scanmail for Exchange and Emanager for Scanmail to handle
and spam.  It's flexible enough that you can avoid most false positives
the first flurry.  I quarantine my mail until I'm sure the rule is rock
Then I have it delete any applicable messages.  There were several domains
generated half the spam I caught.  Some of the worst are:


The only problem is that The Screen Savers newsletter is the only worthwhile
that comes out of mb00.net.  I'd rather just check their web page and avoid
the 15
minutes a day it would take to look at all the other crap they send out.

Don't send hatemail to the above sites.  I actually like them since they're
and don't forge headers.  That makes it my choice to screen them out.

In my experience mail marshal generates a lot of false positives. I don't
use it, but I've had it bounce innocuous messages that I've sent.
