Russian spam RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any tips for filtering Russian SPAM?  I tried to quarantine emails *@*.ru and domains *.ru.  I would prefer to check the subject or body for certain Russian character sets but when I try, I get an error saying that I have non-ASCII characters and cannot save.  Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    You can create a policy rule to reject based on the character set.  In the policy rule, under "message" edit the character set and choose the Cyrillic character sets.  I'd recommend setting this rule to "test" first to see if there are legitimate emails that use those character sets, then change to "reject" after confirming that everything is working as expected.
