content filtering not working
Problem reported by dean brown - 9/1/2015 at 6:37 AM
I'm trying to use Content Filtering to delete email that contains a name. Someone is using my email address to send mail and I'm getting the Delivery Failures. I want to delete these delivery failures before getting them at my inbox. I set the Filter to:
-Anywhere in message
-Contains specific words or phrases (contains): leonora stiedemann (PS - I put it in with Proper case but when I edit it, it is all lower case)
-Delete Message
I still receive these messages. Here is one below:
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at server.emperorpenguin.net.

You might need to add in wildcards and put an asterisk * before and after that text.
I would caution you on making a filter like that though.  Maybe its good that it is not working.
- is Leonora Stiedemann the spammers name ?
If not,
If you are only looking for it to contain your name, then if you send a response to someone, and then they respond back to you... it will also contain your name in the body.  your filter (if i am reading what you did properly) would delete it too.
You might need or want to set up more matching criteria.
maybe search for "*Wolf-Wintheiser_Leonora Stiedemann.zip*"

It should be able to catch the spammers name by just matching what I've put in (it occurs a few times in the body)
