We are still getting spam that has words like "viagra" in them.

Does anyone have a recommended keyword filter and/or algorithm?

Thank you

People, we still have spammers that read and have downloaded the evaluation version of Spamfilter to do more than test.  They are trying to find holes in the program, not that it will help them if everyone has their setup done correctly.  I have over 300 keywords plus over 21 thousand domain names that I use to thwart spam mail.  My list of spammer domain names is always available at http://www.spacequad.com/staticpages/index.php/KnownSpammerDomains  This list is constantly updated.  As for the actual keywords, you will have to for the most part, start picking apart the spam messages and get what you think would be a good word or phrase to put in the list.  If you run a test box, this would be an excellent place to experiment and grow your list.

On a side not, just yesterday, we had a user surf our site looking for a way on how we conducted our biz.  They created an account and logged in, then sent us a messaage asking if they could become a full fledged member to help out in our cause in fighting spam.  They even asked us if they could have an email account from us, amongst other things.  So this tells me that they are getting desperate in wanting to know how we conduct biz.

Michael
