How to filter out Chinese spam in SmarterMail 12.x?
Question asked by Richard Urwin - February 25, 2014 at 4:01 AM

Hi,
 
Is it possible to filter out spam with Chinese Simplified / Traditional character sets?
 
It's possible to do this in Outlook, but I can't see how to achieve the same result in SmarterMail.
 
Thanks,
Richard

Hi Richard,
 
You could try setup a content filter in SM.  Looking either in the header or the body for the following character sets:
 
Chinese Simplified (GB18030)   GB18030
Chinese Simplified (GB2312)    GB2312
Chinese Simplified (HZ)            HZ
Chinese Traditional (Big5)         Big5
 
You would look for a string like charset=Big5

The other option is to use a 3rd party product like Declude which is free. It has the built in ability to block Character sets.
