    I'm fairly new to Thunderbird and am impressed with it.
    There is one specific form of spam that I can't filter:
    It comprises a 'picture of text' giving advice on the stockmarket,
    followed by random text. The sender title and headers are different
    every time, so there's nothing consistent that i can see to use in a
    filter.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Enable the Junk Mail Controls, and train the junk filters, it will catch
    most of them in couple of weeks.

    I get what sounds like the same crap. And my filter has
    not caught one over the months. The Stock market advice
    is a gif, and the rest of the message is random text from
    one message to another. The header seems to be different
    as well. No stopping this.

    Only thing I have figured out to do is to have a couple of
    email address that are used specifically to subscribe to
    the yahoo groups and when this starts up, suspend that one
    and use the new one for a time then repeat.

    Lee, Dan

    I've been running it for a month, and, like you Dan, the spam-blocker
    is showing no sign of learning about this particular one. It's learned
    everything else.
    I was previously using Ella, a spam-blocker add on for ie, and that
    could do it. I should've been more specific about using a separate
    usened email address in the first place.

    I dont know what else to tell you. Junk Mail Controls will catch this
    type of spam. Here it is catching 99 plus % of spam sent my way,
    inclusive of those ones you describe.

    Is there a way to see how successfully the Junk mail control is working?
    i.e. percentage?
    I kept getting the same email "Here at world stock report...Trading
    alert" for about two months but has only now (within the week) started
    filtering it automatically. So it must eventually work but why does it
    take so long?

    Spamassassin has a plugin (FuzzyOCR) that will pass the image through
    optical charachter recognition software (gocr) and parse the resulting
    text for common spam words:

    Well then, lets see if we can get your JMC working properly then.

    Do you have it set to move messages to a common Junk folder? What is the
    size of your training.dat?

    The easiest way is to simply use the system as extant.
    When JMC catches a message it moves it to the Junk folder as unread
    When you catch one, and mark it, it is moved as read.

    So, your 'catch ratio' is simply comparing the number of read messages
    to the number of unread messages rounding up to a 100
    Keep all junk for a week and do a weekly rate, or day by day.

    the mail extension Mnehny had a feature that calculated some Junk Mail
    statistics, but didnt include catch ratio or some such.


    I dont know why yours took so long. Here such messages get filtered
    after the third or fourth - so usually within a week or less

    Be advised that use of Spamassassin will decrease the catch in JMC
    currently and further impact lower catch rates in the future. Every
    message that Spamassassin catches is one less that JMC 'sees' and gets
    trained on

    Since JMC can easily be trained to catch 99% plus of spam, use of other
    filtering techniques will only reduce the catch ratio.

    I mark it as junk and have it set to go to the Trash rather than Junk
    folder. The training.dat file is 2.8MB

    I suggest you use an interim folder/file for spam collection. Putting it
    straight to trash may end up with you losing legitmate emails that are
    incorrectly caught. You can have the 'junk' folder emptied into the
    trash automatically.

    I would call that overly large. My training.dat is 232KB since 11 July
    Its catching, as I said, 99% plus of spam sent my way.

    Okay, since your JMC isnt working well, there will be no harm in
    re-starting from scratch. You will go down to about a 65% catch ratio
    but then that will improve (usually within the month) to 90% plus.

    Thunderbird
    Tools-->Junk Mail Controls [Adaptive Filter]
    reset training data

    Caveat: this WILL result in a temporary loss of efficiency, but as I
    said this will improve shortly.
    All you have to do is mark those messages that are junk as junk
    and any ones JMC catches that are not junk as non junk.

    I note you have Mnehny installed. I suggest you ignore/turn off its spam
    indication - marking 'unknown' messages as not junk will NOT improve
    your catch ratio (tho it might help in false positives) and will bloat
    your training.dat

    It works fine, except on the type of spam which is the subject of this
    thread and which seems to be a currently fashionable spam to send.

    Its amusing in some ways to see the same company hyped week after week
    with promises of exploding prices within the week.

    Well, its either working FINE or it isnt. Your call.
    If you WANT to continue to get that type of spam, well, is that what you
    call working fine?

    As I stated, here my JMC is catching 99% plus of spam sent my way
    inclusive of the emails you describe.

    Why so aggressive? It works for you. It clearly doesn't work for a
    number of the rest of us on one particular type of spam. Sorry I dared
    to say so.

    One test might be to have tony or someone else "edit as new" and email
    it to you to see if your spam filter catches it.

    They are quite welcome to do that. My email is right there in every
    message ()

    If they are going to do that tho, I request they inform me when doing so
    so I can keep a weather eye out for it. Use of [testspam] as an additon
    to the subject line will assist
