Ya, I am doing the same. Hopefully it helps 🙂
Glad to hear that it is not just me that has been having issues with spam in recent weeks.
Maybe an inside job? 😉
I am now getting these fake Shaw emails under every account, even ones I never use.
Time consuming but hopefully it helps.
@kayos -- Shaw should be doing more to block spam
That is easy for you to say, but what specific suggestions do you have?
For example, if you decode the above MIME-encoded text, you see:
NB: The indenting is mine, as is each "not" that originally was "net". Also, the hand-coded HTML is missing one "</center>" tag, and missing one "</div>" tag.
How would one identify the above text as "spam" E-mail?
The web-site at "www.b-cdo.net" is a legitimate web-site, that is being abused by the spammer, to create the sub-domain "CNN-NEWS".
> It wasn't like this until a couple weeks ago and it wasn't like this before Christmas so your "schedule" idea is wrong.
I do not accept your conjecture as being the verified truth.
Shaw could start verifying the sender domains, one of the senders was firstname.lastname@example.org
I agree with @kayos this is a recent wave of spam, usually the complaints are about Shaw filters being to heavy.
@mdk - Your statemnts are accurate but you are clearly not listening.
Something certainly has changed. Recently I am seeing all kinds of crap coming through that never used to make it to my Inbox.
@skvanb -- you are clearly not listening
Ha, ha, ha.
If I were not doing so, I would not be reading through this thread, and not posting.
Yes, I too have noticed an increase in "spam" E-mail, all originating, as I have mentioned before, through the Amazon ECS (Elastic Cloud Service). For each "spam" message, I have been sending a report to: <email@example.com> in the hope that they will identify their misbehaving customer, and terminate their account, and "ban" them from opening another account with them.
