Spam with Embedded Images
Posted on 2006-11-29
We are using Exchange Enterprise 2003 SP2 behind a Trend Micro Messaging Suite SMTP Gateway. Clients are Outlook 2003 SP2.
One of our users is receiving spam emails with embedded images. The actual text in the rest of the email is nonsense, but the embedded image contains the words that relate to the investment/ business opportunity the spammers want to advertise. Since this text is embedded in the image, our SMTP Gateway is not picking it up and blocking the email.
I've raised a case with Trend about this, but does anyone know if Exchange (our Outlook even) has any way to block these messages? Trend say that they are looking into it, but have no method at the moment.
