I went through more of my spam folder and found more false positives. I have a suggestion that I think will help. I think the filters need an update.
Specifically, I am suggesting that you allow users to make a custom filter like this:
- If it is called spam by GMail, AND
- It contains any of the following words: Watch, Viagra, Diploma, Degree, or any Russian Characters, THEN
- Delete it permanently.
This would reduce my spam folder by a dramatic amount. I could then look inside it more frequently for false positives. Just the Russian Character one would get rid of a slew of mail. Hopefully, they will improve this aspect of the product. The point of email is lost if a message never makes it to the recipient because of too much spam.
