I agree with Philip when he says that categorization is a good tool:
The point is that I can check the lower-scored files
false positives more easily since they will be smaller than without the
sorting. I also tend to check the higher scored files less often.
The higher scored one are more likely to be blacklist (file as
/dev/null) candidates. Yes, anything over 1,000 :-)
Nowdays i get very little spam, anyway. Gmail
does a very good job. My ISP does a nosy job, because it refuses and
deletes spam without asking.
I think GMail is nosy, more so than I want to deal with.
I have about 40 email addresses in use,most of them single purpose,
perhaps on specific mailing lists or groups of vendors. My
@antonaylward ISP, Dreamhost, allows me (effectively) unlimited email
addresses :-) It makes filtering and hence automation so much easier!
It also means that if a vendor group turn Spammy I can simply cancel
that email address.
Most of the lists I'm on are closed and the archives are not publicly
accessible. This is an exception to that latter one, and I get 4-5
piec3s of non-list related mail from spammers or peole making other
solicitations each month.
However one address I've had since the start of the 1990s and I get
about 80-200 pieces of spam there EACH DAY! My tuned
Procmail+Spamassassin has been taking care of that very well until
recently. Now, thank you, that gap has been closed.
I thought you had a method to, in user prefs, define a
score for an
address, instead of an absolute "all email from this address is spam",
giving a 999 score.
Yes, you can, but some sites don't have real users, that are spam only
or advertising only. Do you really want email from casinos,
non-prescription pharmaceuticals, sex slavers?
Many others. Google for yourself.
That's why I have created some (perl?) rules of my own. With difficulty,
I don't speak perl.
