||The Fight Against Spam, Part 2|
|Subject:||Usually works well|
I've found that the Junk filter works very well, often beating our Spam Assassin setup in identifying spam.
However, on my Mac OS 10.3 machine it has (or had) a problem. It never, ever flagged as spam messages which had an old email address of mine in the headers. I made sure this email address didn't appear anywhere in my address book, account settings, or "previous recipients". I tried resetting the system, rebuilding the whole of my Mail system. I tried everything. Nothing worked.
Eventually I killed the old email address, but I'd be curious to know what the problem was, and whether it has been fixed since Mac OS 10.3.2.
