Russian Spam

Fairly regularly I get spam written in Russian with cyrllic characters. This tends to finish in my In-box.

Is there any way of setting the spam filters to place mail written thus in the Junk Mail box, please?

:idea: Not an expert on these things, but isn't it possible to create a filter (or even a pre-download filter)
who looks at the headers for the used charset and moves it to the Junk Mail folder or deletes it without downloading it. (= pre-download)

Never received a Russian spam message, only English and sometimes Chinese. :evil:

To expand on Eric's suggestion, add a filter to your incoming messages tab that:
  • Searches the Content-Type header
  • For the appropriate value
  • Perform Increase junk score
  • Select a value from the drop dcown box (I'd suggest a high value)


Positiion this filter immediately above your junk mail filter.

One more option:

Put some of those characters (one by line) in the banned subjects file.
