I just received a new e-mail from Jon Olson of SWAT Traffic and my spam filter caught it again. I am using Spam Assassin and if it scores more than 5 (I think that´s right) it will be considered as spam. This is what the results from spam assassin tells me about the latest e-mail from SWAT Traffic:
spam, SpamAssassin (not cached, score=6.61, required 5, BAYES_00 0.00, GAPPY_SUBJECT 2.00, HEAD_ILLEGAL_CHARS 1.61, URIBL_OB_SURBL 3.01)
I am not sure what it all means, but I am going to give it a try. The score the e-mail got was 6.61 and that was more than 5, so the e-mail is considered as spam. The subject got a score of 2.00 (the subject was this: S.W.A.T. Traffic – Update Jan. 2nd) and there was illegal characters in the head (score of 1.61). Not sure what that means, maybe it´s the . in S.W.A.T ? or maybe it´s some characters from the server it´s being sent from?
Hopefully not all members of SWAT Traffic are having the same problems as I am having. Well, I am getting the messages even though it´s in my spam folder – so I really don´t have a problem do I 🙂
