    Posted: 17 August 2010 at 10:11pm
Way back in 4.1.2.818 the following was added:

// New to VersionNumber = '4.1.2.818';
{TODO -cNew The keyword searches are now performed also against all MIME headers, allowing to search for example the Content-Type, charset, Content-Transfer-Encoding, Content-Disposition and filename}


Are keywords automatically scanned in all MIME headers or do we target them like a subject search?

I want to build something to block specific charset matches.  For example if I want to block Korean, I could look for charset="koi8-r" or would I need something like:

content-type:charset="koi8-r"

Actually koi8-r is Russian Cyrillic, not Korean... oops.  I can't read either, which is why I want to block them Wink

There's nothing special you need to do, SpamFilter will look thru that content as if it was part of the email's body. Do note however that in your example, some emails won't have that exact syntax. For example, in addition to:

ontent-type:charset="koi8-r"

they could have:
Content-Type: text/html; charset=koi8-r

(no quotes around koi8-r, "charset" keyword placed by itself)

Ok, understood.  The headers are simply treated as part of the body, and no special syntax is required like subjects.

I suspect that if Russians wanted they could also send their messages using UTF-8, so it is not possible to stop 100% of Russian based spam but it should certainly stop some.
