High spam catch rates continue in latest spam filter test
There was good news for most participants in the bi-monthly VBSpam spam filters tests: spam catch rates for most products remained very high. It was good news when it came to false positives too. Solutions blocked few to no emails from the corpus of regular legitimate emails, and few 'newsletters' too.
This month, we also subscribed to newsletters from several US presidential candidates, giving us 23 emails from 10 different candidates in this month's newsletter corpus. While the emails we received were all solicited, there was still a 10 per cent probability of a spam filter blocking them, which is high in a context in which many products are set to avoid false positives.
The single email from this group that was blocked the most was one from presidential candidate namely Marco Rubio, asking his alleged supporters to participate in a survey. Rick Santorum was the only politician whose emails (he sent two) weren't blocked by any full solution.
