Messagelabs isn't immune, seems to hand out licences to send spam
I've subscribed to these guys for five years, and their "Skeptic" is becoming less skeptical.
They seem to let a lot of hired gun spammers send through, with the reason:
X-SpamReason: No, hits=0.0 required=7.0 tests=sa_preprocessor: (...)
...where some identifier follows.
I don't know what their sa_preprocessor does to let these jokers through, but it seems inconsistent. I've had to resort to listing the offending hired guns' networks, domain names and e-mail addresses in their Blocked Senders lists, turning this into a new Whack-A-Mole game. Whatever it is doesn't matter; I didn't subscribe to those mailings.
Is Alex Shipp still roaming these forums? Any insights?
On the plus side, they still haven't let a piece of malware in over five years. Spam is one thing, but at least they're holding up to the virus detection guarantee.
