    Posted: 21 April 2005 at 10:58am

Just in the last week my spam filter is now allowing alot of spam thru.  I even put domains in the local blacklist and it still allows the spam thru even though it sees the domain in the blacklist.  I am going to put a part of the log in this to show what I mean.  If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate them.  thanks in advance.

That usually occurs when users remove the numeric error code at the beginning of the customized responses. Without it, SpamFilter is unable to provide the error code to the sender, and is thus forced to accept the message as it cannot be rejected (it would violate RFCs it it would).
