DATE_IN_FUTURE_03_06 matches wrongly

Post by sk777 » 22 Aug 2019 09:46

For some time the Matching Rule DATE_IN_FUTURE_03_06 scores at many mails for no obvious reason.

Score Matching Rule Description
3.03 DATE_IN_FUTURE_03_06 Date: is 3 to 6 hours after Received: date

It occurs to several sending domains. But the system time displayed in our EFA system is correct.

This is the Message Header of an example received mail:

Received on: 21/08/19 13:24:57
Received: from mail.*********.de (mail.*********.de [**.***.**.**])
by mail2.***.de (Postfix) with ESMTP id 1483511C88
for <*******.********@***.de>; Wed, 21 Aug 2019 09:06:13 +0200 (CEST)
From: ****** ********** <*.**********@*********.de>

It's a very annoying problem because the score of this matching rule is 3.03 and compared to other rules quite high. This results to many false spam matches.
