    Now almost getting just as many spam emails as I was getting when xtra
    didn't have this feature. Anyone else notice that it has gradually got
    worse.

  2. They may be tweaking their filters to reduce the number of false positives.
    Just filter it yourself. I find that "SpamPal" works excellently.

    look gentle people, the spam war is a guerilla war. We block spam in one
    place and the spammer adapts, we need to adapt in response.

    There is no such thing as a fixed spam filter.

    Have noticed that my spam is now 3 times what it was beginning of last
    month.
    Most caught by the ISP filter.

    Paradise appear to be letting a few more slip through the net as well.
    Although when I go on line to check my trapped spam, the one's that got
    through are only a small fraction of the total. Its the spam where almost
    every word is misspelt (herrball viaggrar anyone?) that appear to be getting
    through the spam trap.
