That spam-free feeling

Ah, yes. It’s a good morning when there’s no spam in your inbox! Over the past few days a new breed of spam found it’s way into my inbox.
This new spam was short in length, almost completely html based with short sentences and didn’t ever score over 3.5 on Spam Assassin. I spent those last few days training SA to recognise the new spam and this morning my inbox is empty once more!
My bulging SPAM folder has reached 6.5MB (No, I don’t get that much spam, I haven’t emptied it since Aug 6th!) and hardly a false positive in sight! Happy times indeed!
