Spam in a foreign language RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently started getting a lot of spam email in a foreign language which looks like Chinese.  Is there a way I can block these emails?  I have setup content filtering but the SCL and PCL of these emails is 2 so they get through.  I am at a loss as what to try next.  Any ideas?

  • Hi

    One work around I could found is to Create a Rule for Foreign Spam on Outlook side.

    Please check this blog

    For the server side, you can use "Content Filtering", but I prefer Outlook rule, it is better.

  • Yeah I did that but the problem I have is that rules for Outlook only run when Outlook is open.  When I am out of the office I use IMAP, and the rules don't apply unless I stay logged in at the office and leave Outlook running.  I can't do that.  I do have content filtering running and it does pretty well for most spam in English as you can add phrases for it to watch out for, however I can't enter foreign characters.  I try to copy and past the Chinese subjects but they don't show up correctly in the EMS.  Any other ideas?

  • Hi

    I could not find any article about foreign language filter from Exchange Server, it should be a known issue.
