Spam emails

Receiving spam emails this afternoon at the rate of about 10 a minute.

No idea why it started. Have reached limit of number of addressed i can blacklist.

Many of the emails appear to be in Russian, but not all.

Would be impossible to filter them out

Re: Spam emails

Sign into webmail and create a Filter Rule similar to the following:

2019-11-14.jpeg
For the Regex field value copy and paste the following text [Ѐ-ӿ]

FYI: Provided unique flag colours are set with each rule it can provide a visual indicator of which rule ran against a message; there are actions settings like Add IMAP keyword but I have no idea how they would be used in webmail.

Re: Spam emails

BTW do review the content of the Spam folder before the start of a new month in case the filter makes an unexpected match.

Re: Spam emails

@Fiona_W, you may want to disable the filter rule as it is making some unexpected matches against emails not containing Cyrillic text; only seems to happen when recipient quotes sender's email in their reply.

Re: Spam emails

Consider re-enabling the filter as the issue seems to no longer occur; post back here if you have any issue.
