As most here are experiencing, been combating spam.
People have provided filters that do, mercifully, seem to have reduced the amount of spam to the point that now, touch wood, I am down to just crap coming from "goodtastestories.com".. its utter garbage - and any second rate ISP level filter should stop it.
Now, that said, it is being captured by a filter and plonked into the spam folder.
My question is.. how do I stop these from being delivered at all?
The "DISCARD" option does not seem to work (just lands in spam).
I have a few filters now.. and if the same term pops up in 2 filters (one saying DISCARD... one saying "File to SPAM") the offending SPAM gets filed as spam. Changing the order of filters does not help...
Basically, it seems, if there is a way for these filters to get the messaged into your mail client, they will... even if the final (or first) instruction is "DISCARD"
