Subject: [info] Had to manually upgrade spam filters - watch Blocked Mail
Date: Tue, 02 Nov 2004 03:31:23 +1100


Hi list admins,

You will have seen that absolute pile of gumph spam arrive in the
past couple of days. I have been trying to train the spam filters by
pumping through the spam learner, rather than manually building
filters within the list (which can become prone to coding mistakes).
Anyway, with the casino spam it was obviously an abysmal failure
<sigh>

In the past couple of hours or so, I have manually fiddled, tested
and recently rolled out upgraded spam filters. As is the case when
coded spam filters are upgraded, please check your list's/lists'
Blocked Mail sections.

Start at
http://lists.rootsweb.com/tools/LISTNAME
login, go to Blocked Mail page and review the data. Convert LISTNAME
to your list's name.

Reports of false positives please send to the HelpDesk
http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/help.cgi
citing the listname and preferably paste the relevant url.

General issues for discussion to LISTOWNERS.

Flowers should be sent to my wife who asks me who I am when I crawl
into bed [just kidding (I think)].
