Spam with SCL ratings of 1 - 3?

Posted on 2009-05-14
Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I have a few employees that get 30-40 spam e-mails per day. I have IMF turned on and the threshold for junk mail is 4, delete is 7. The problem is that the stuff that makes it to the inbox is rated 0 or 1 or 2. So I have viagra e-mails that are looked at as good mail and just forwards it to the inbox.

Is there any better way to filter this? I currently use IMF with IMF Companion so that I can use a whitelist. This is on a exchange 2003 box.

I did the reg key mod. Is that what you're talking about or is there something else?

Is the PNG spam with just an image and nothing else?

Yes, you can check the version from the IMF update folder.
Do you use other antispam function?
Do you use RBL? Which?
