Messages containing chinese characters

Recommended Posts

How can I set up my blocking lists or SpamAssassin within SpamCop to block messages containing chinese characters? I am regularly getting this spam coming through, despite having China included in my blocking lists

A lot of spam from China is sent via zombie computers

Not sure if Webmail blocks china anymore as rbl.cluecentral.net is now defunct

Use your VER for "Queue for Reporting" option, followed by Report spam TAB. this will also report web pages and add the source IP for SCBL to count towards blocking ASAP

I do this and some chinese spam gets blocked, and I am still getting a significant trickle of this spam. It just seems obvious that for many people if it contains chinese characters, it is spam. Is it not possible for the SpamCop version of SpamAssassin to be configured so as to spot these?
