Hey guys i am one of those people that does sometimes struggle with Regex, but in this case all i am trying to do is match a phrase with a comma at the end.
Simply entering the phrase with the comma, does not seem to work, i suspect that the comma is being treated as a delimiter to another word.
 
here are the regex entries i have tried to no avail.

You can't use a , in any regex with spamfilter.  It is a known bug, no work around (like escaping with ,, or anything like that).

It really hurts you when you want to use quantifiers!

The only option is to format the regex slightly differently.  Not sure if the specific regex implementation in spamfilter supports it but you might try:

\054

or

\x2c

Both of those represent escaped , character in regex.  If the spamfilter implementation supports them your in luck.
