BoxTrapper - some spam avoiding it

    I have found that if someone sends me an email with the same email address in the From and To fields and my address in the CC field BoxTrapper accepts it without question.

    Anyone know a solution to this?

    BoxTrapper is excellent, it's just this little glitch ...

    Cheers

    me too me too!

    Oooh oooh! I just noticed this tonight. I would welcome any suggestions. In my case, the To: address was mine, but the CC: was some email addresses that I have in my whitelist.

    Interesting side note: If an email comes through with a From: that matches a whitelist rule (like: from dude@dude.com), then the BoxTrapper Log shows:
    Email matches rule "from dude@dude.com" Line X in whitelist

    But, when a spam snuck through because of the To: / CC: thingy, the line in the log was:
    Processing email from self junk@spamsource.com/junk@spamsource.com/Subject Line

    What does that mean?

    I'm glad it's not just me!

    That's exactly the same log message as I get - I hope someone out there has an answer.
    What does the 'self' refer to BTW?
