spamsters work around watchword

Postby eee » Mon Jul 24, 2017 4:24 pm

I am getting some spam messages thru to my target email account. It appears that the spamsters are simply omitting the watchword portion of my created addresses. In the example of:

someword.x.user@spamgourmet.com

they are sending email to

x.user@spamgourmet.com

and it is getting thru.

Originally I could not see a blank watchword in my list of addresses. So I decided to send an email from this truncated address, so that I could set the Count Remaining to zero. I do now see an entry for the address with the blank watchword, however there is nothing to click on for me to change the Count Remaining to zero.

I'd appreciate any help on preventing emails from getting thru to me if they have no watchword.

Thank you for your help!

PS: My account has watchword enforcement checked.

The good news seems to be that now that the address with no watchword has been created, it only has 5 remaining messages to come thru. OR, is a blank watch word a special case, that is mistakenly being allowed thru?
