Hi

I am currently running 3.5.4.730 and I am finding that when I have :tagsubject and deliver active on a user (not sure if it is happening on accounts that are not setup as :tagsubject) that even though specialist is in the White Lists Keywords that the email is still tagged as spam because the word cialis is in my Black Lists Keywords....

Is there a way to insure that the word specialist is not caught due to it containing the word cialis?  Is there some way to specify in the blacklist to only capture on the word cialis?

Thanks

Put a space in front of the word so it become ' cialis' instead of 'cialis'

We had to that for some of our blacklist keywords because names like Kraddick were being stopped because they contained the last 4 letters of a blacklisted keyword. Wink

Putting a space in front of the letter 'd' in that four letter word helped eliminate things like what your describing from happening.

or ...
((?i)\bcialis\b)
will match ONLY the whole word cialis.  Or, get more interesting with:
((?i)\bc[yi][a\@4][l1]{1,2}[yia\@4]s\b)
which will catch a couple of munged versions of cialis.  Here is yet another variation:
((?i)((\bc.i.a.l.i.s\b)|(\bs.e.x.u.a.l\b)|(i.a.g.r.a\b)|(\b(o|0).r.d.e.r\b)|(\bc.h.e.a.p\b)))
The last one will not match for the actual word cialis but will match some of the munged up crap that also shows up in those messages.  Sometimes you have to spent a lot of time making and re-making these which is why I am trying to rely more and more on NON-Keyword filters as those get better and better.
