controlling spam with MSExchange.UceContentFilter.xml

Hi 

I need to know if there is a way of using a wild card word inconjunction 
with the MSExchange.UceContentFilter.xml.

I will try to explain, recently our ISP who provide our first line spam 
filtering changed their methods of controlling spam and since this change we 
are getting alot more spam into our exchange systems. They delete obvious 
spam but the ones they are a little unsure about they  now send it out and 
adjust the subject to include the word spam I now this sounds daft but just 
go along with it.

So we are getting alot of spam with the different subjects all prefixed with 
{spam} ie

{spam} buy some viagra

{spam} get a loan cheap today.

My question is could I create a custon weight entry to catch everything 
prefixed with the {spam} prefix?

Somthing like this

<CustomWeightEntry Type="SUBJECT" Change="MAX" Text="{spam}*.*"/>

That is so funny and coincidental. I wrote and email to a client and he 
replied back. When it came back to me the subject line was prefixed with
RE: [SPAM-LIKE] in front of my original subject. I had no idea what this was 
and how it happened. I even went to my Sent mail and checked that it wasn't 
somehow put there by myself unknowingly. So that is what that is all about. 
Lesson to be learned here for you is that this is a legitimate email so if 
you filter out all those prefixes you may be causing more harm than good. I 
do use IMF v2 and am 99.99999% SPAM free.

What SCL gateway setting have you found to be a good number? I have mine set 
to 8.

Way to high Paul. The SCL varies with all comapnies and sysstems. Personally 
I have mine set at 5/4. How do I know this works for me? I monitor the 
filtered SPAM with IMF Companion so I can see what is being filtered and 
most of the time it is all SPAM. Once in a while a legitimate one will get 
filtered but not enough of them to force me to back off of my SCL ratings. 
When I do see a legitimate one I will add the oamin to my "Exception" list 
and that usually takes care of any more from that domain getting filtered. 
Are you using RBL's also. This really helps cut down on UCE's also.

There's no documentation of IMF supporting or using wildcards or regular 
expressions in the  msExchange.UceContentFilter.xml file, afaik. Tried once, 
and failed to make it act on wildcards.

In fact, the sample xml code in SP2 Release Notes actually has separate 
entries for stuff that could be wildcard-ed - like foo1 and foo2, instead of 
foo*, which could be an indication of the fact that wildcards aren't 
supported.

Here it is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<CustomWeightEntries xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2005/CustomWeight">
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="BODY" Change="1" Text="foo1"/>
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="BODY" Change="-1" Text="foo2"/>
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="BODY" Change="5" Text="Special offer"/>
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="BODY" Change="-9" Text="Verl�ngertes 
Angebot"/>
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="SUBJECT" Change="MIN" Text="????"/>
     <CustomWeightEntry Type="BOTH" Change="MAX" Text="Offre sp�ciale"/>
</CustomWeightEntries>

Actually I'm with Paul, 8 is good, although we set ours down to 7 at night 
when there are far fewer real messages floating around to get inadvertently 
blocked. I've sent some short test messages that the SCL gave a 5 to, so I'm 
really uncomfortable with going that low.

Whatever works with your email system. there is nothing written in stone at 
what level the SCL ratings should be set. Best way to figure what works for 
you is go with the defaults, monitor and then make your adjustments.

how do I assign a variable to a check box or radio control?

Not sure if it's really a good idea though.

Their site accepts address-related arguments as part of the URL, then returns XML results.

What is the Best XML API for .NET 3.5?
I’m starting a new project which will dynamically generate (user will have to pick and choose data, then generate the XML dynamically) RDLC for Reporting.

Note: We are all ready using LINQ to XML in the main application. This is for the reprinting module of the application. -- Alexander L. Wykel AW Software Works Alexander Wykel wrote: > I’m start...
