View Full Version : Mail Filter Failed to Delete Defined Messages
4th June 2009, 20:31
In trying to lessen the amount of UCE making it's way to INBOXES I setup 2 simple filters in Mail Filter tab for each account in ISPConfig3 presently.
However this morning every account with a filter created that should have deleted all E-Mail with a Subject line containing ***SPAM*** failed completely.
One account saw 20 pieces of UCE which were identified as ***SPAM*** by the server in the Subject line.
In Mail -> Filters I added rules as follows: Source = Subject -> Contains -> ***SPAM***
with Action = Delete
Active = Checked
I think I am missing something in configuration possibly?
Your ideas and suggestions would be great.
Thanking you in advance for your help and time.
Make sure that you escaped the search string correctly, it has to be \*\*\*SPAM\*\*\*

Thank you I will try escaping the special characters in the SPAM filter.
However, I do have another filter which is looking to filter out 'Increase your Salary' (http://giganetwireless.net:8080/#)
UCE with that Subject are still making their way through.
Thank you for your help very much.

It seems that even with \*\*\*SPAM\*\*\* in the filter, and .Spam being the folder I created, it wont move to .Spam. they go straight through to the inbox.
Might there be something Im missing?

Please try to update to the current beta version. I use the beta on my mail server and filtering for ***SPAM*** works fine.

Thank you for the reply...
I am presently running ISPConfig 126.96.36.199, I have seen there is a download for 188.8.131.52 BETA is available but I am afraid to even try the BETA version.
Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Then you will have to wait for the 184.108.40.206 final if you dont ant to install the beta to fix your problem :-)

Just a note - I am having the same issue.

I installed the latest beta version - mail filters still don't work.

I use the latest Bet on my mailserver and filter all emails with the mailfilters in ispconfig and they work perfectly.

Do you have an suggestions on what I should look at to try to get it working?
EDIT: I found the problem.
I was using Subject->Begins With - the regexp created by ISPConfig for "Begins With" is:
### BEGIN FILTER_ID:1
### END FILTER_ID:1
That will never be true, since there is always a space after header fields, in this case "Subject:". When a space is added between "Subject:" and the pattern, "Begins With" works fine. My opinion is, this is a bug, unless I am missing something. Note that if you specify "Contains", it works fine because the regexp is correctly formatted. I did not try the other tests.
