Default Mail Filter Failed to Delete Defined Messages

Hello group...

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.

Best Regards

Make sure that you escaped the search string correctly, it has to be \*\*\*SPAM\*\*\*

Hi Till

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'
UCE with that Subject are still making their way through.

Thank you for your help very much.

Best Regards

Default Escaping characters correctly

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.

Hello Til

Thank you for the reply...

I am presently running ISPConfig 3.0.1.3, I have seen there is a download for 3.0.1.4 BETA is available but I am afraid to even try the BETA version.

Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
