I Like Russian Spam Email

Russian Spam Email
Well, at least better than other spam email because Russian-language spam is amenable to filtering. In Outlook I just set a few rules to watch for a few common Cyrillic characters. For example, this character: Д in the subject seems common and so I filter on that. (I guess it translates to a “D” or “delta”.) I also throw anything from the mail.ru domain away. Think of all the deals I’m missing.

  1. Awesome. This did the trick.

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    with Д in the subject or body
    and with 'Д' or '.ru' in the message header
    move it to the Junk Email folder.

  2. I was also informed that if you go to Tools/Preferences - Junk Mail that there is an International tab where you can block top-level domains or block encodings.
