Filter Question: List of possible spam words

Post by Big_Eye » Wed Mar 16, 2005 10:30 pm

Is there a limit to the number of words or strings that the system will look for when checking for spam. I have imported my list into the General one in ME and just want to make sure I didn't overload the system.

Thats a good question. I wish I knew the answer.

I know that ME filters will not check passd a certain number of characters. My filters will catch Vi@gra in most messages unless it is a really long text message and Vi@gra is near the bottom of the message. It will get through.

ME Admins, If I am wrong let me know, but I have tested this myself because I couldn't understand why some messages would get through.
