    seems as though this wrote: one is getting by even MailScanner.

    I put this in the /etc/vfilters/domainname.com file to stop it for that domain.
    # Exim filter

    if not first_delivery and error_message then finish endif

    if
    $header_subject: contains "wrote"
    then
    save "/dev/null" 660
    endif

    Wonder if appending that to each domain file on the /etc/vfilters directory would work for a server wide filter.

    Stop wrote: spam

    Most of those "wrote:" emails (which have now stopped for our servers) were pump & dump stock spam. The SARE_STOCKS ruleset for Spamassassin is highly effective for these.

    Here's the ruleset: http://www.rulesemporium.com/rules.htm#stocks

    All the best -- Bill
