"How do I keep my inbox from getting Korean SPAM?"
filtering on typical Korean characters in the subject. This worked with
Eudora on the 10 Korean messages I got over the weekend.
ACM have introduced a spam filter on their email redirection service
<https://spam.acm.org/public/spamapp/newfilter.cfm>. It lets through quite
a few spams but doesn't seem to block genuine messages.
Over the weekend I got 254 messages. Of these:
* 113 Quarantined by the ACM system,
* 26 detected by my mail filters (with 10 Korean),
* 65 not filtered but I considered Spam
* 50 genuine messages.
I looked through the subject lines and senders of the Quarantined messages
but didn't find any I thought were genuine (I opened the content of one
which had a plausible subject line, but it turned out to be a Nigerian scam).
