Ok first off I have done a search and read through many threads talking about how the AV/AS systems work as well as the wiki materials. Still, I'm confused as to why over the last several months I'll get blasted with dozens of the same e-mail over a period of hours/days and even after clicking junk on them, near identical e-mails will make it through. This particular server is FOSS 4.5.11 on Ubuntu. The server/global settings are default (kill=50,tag=33). Stuff does get into the junk folder so obviously stuff is working in some context.

For an example. Here is an e-mail that that I received 20ish copies of over the last 3-4 hours:

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson


The ONLY things changed in these quotes are the user/domain of my e-mail and server to protect the guilty (me!).

It seems like the effectiveness of the spam system has dropped considerably over the last 2 months. Maybe this is just a byproduct of the spammers getting smarter...

Any help is appreciated.
