Re: message screener problem

Hi Jim,

Found it out already. But thanks anyway.
Seems that the message screener is not that good anyway.
I've already decided to install a spam control on a Linux based station.  So
I don't have to bother about costly software.

Are the mails in HTML-format?
If so, the message screener will not be able to scan them. Also, many
spam-mails break up words with invalid or commetn HTML tags. This is done to
skirt basic text-matching filters, like the message screener.

Hi all,
 
I've installed the message screener on a smtp server.  Setup was done
according to one of the articles on the isaserver.org site. However, it
seems now that the screener is just checking the subject and not the body.  
 
example:  there is a rule that checks for "Generic Viagra" in header or
body.  If I send 2 test mails, one  with these words in the subject and one
in the body, the mail with the words in the subject is caught, not the one
with the words in the body.
 
My setup:
ISA + SP1 + FP1 on Win2k SP3 (+all hotfixes)
SMTP (IIS5) on Win2k SP3 (+all hotfixes) + message screener

Anybody any id?

Danny
