Spam Headers

Post by KY Dave » Sun Dec 18, 2005 2:09 pm

For a few weeks now, I have been receiving a few email that K9 is marking as [SPAM], but PopTray is NOT.
Below, I have posted two headers from some of the email.
X-Message-Status: n:0

The interesting part in this header is, there are two SUBJECTS in the header,
but only one is shown in PopTray for the email.

This one, there is only one SUBJECT,
but PopTray still can't find the K9 spam marker in the HEADER or SUBJECT.

Are these a new 'trick' email header being used by spammers?

The bottom email has the [SPAM] marker in the PREVIEW SUBJECT.
Neither of the email has the [SPAM] marker in the SUBJECT in the main window,
both have it in the HEADER, but PopTray identifies neither as spam,
even though I have my RULE checking the HEADER and SUBJECT
for the spam marker.
