Morning SPAM
Question asked by John Marx - 2/3/2015 at 5:09 AM
Answered
I know we went to this new forum as it made it easier on SmarterTools but I vaguely remember that in the old system we had so much "spam" in the mornings that the forum was becoming unusable. Each morning around 6am or 7am I log in and have nothing but "spam" in my feed. Am I the only one or is this something that we need to suggest they fix?

There are tons of spam... Seems like better captcha is needed or something.

I've been deleting 15 to 20 spam messes PER DAY, and it just keeps coming. We took iur portal down, pending a new server, abd soam solution from SmarterTools. I can control the e-mail spam, but not the portal spam.

We just rolled out our new spam changes for track 11 beta to our server here, and we're going to see how it goes.  We're using several different methods to detect spam including honeypots, calculated server side fields, form timers and some others. 
 
Feedback on this is welcome, but please use the Track 11 beta category so the right team sees it.

Awesome. I hope it works. If it works here will you be incorporating that functionality into SmarterMail as well?

Since SmarterMail doesn't have any non-authenticated user creation, nor any non-authenticated email submission forms, these methods won't really work to prevent email spam. These are intended to block people from automatically submitting community posts or creating users using a bot.
