Add "Add to blocked MCP" link in mailscanner/detail.php page

Post by fbessone » 18 Jul 2015 08:33

Hello everybody,

Maybe its not smart, but i propose it anyway ;)
What do you think of adding a LINK near the subject of the email you see in "detail.php" page to ban the subject ?
As an image is worth 1000 words, i attach an image :)

Many times i notice to be spammed with a mail that passes through SA and is believed clean and hits many users email addresses and floods for some days ... in that situations would take a second to ban that subject at voilà ...

what do you think ?
Thanks for reading
have a nice we!

I'm not sure blocking by subject like this is a safe/sane solution...

In theory and although unlikely, a legitimate email subject and illegitimate email subject could have the same subject.

Why not just block the sender domain or ip address?

Because email domain is often spoofed, and email address sometimes is correct, maybe the sender email is a friend that is a virus victim and is spamming around.
Many times we receive tons of spam messages with a specific subject that really cant be used in a working environment (like ... "Hey babe, find your mate now !" ....) by now i put them manually in MPC but its not very fast to do

You're better off training spamassassin to see that as "spam".

That'll achieve the result you want without plugging up the system looking for keywords in subjects (or whole subjects).
