    Default Receiving the same spam multiple times

    Hello,
    After installing zass (6.5) i
    receive the same (same receiver, same sendtime) spam multiple times. Sometimes only
    2 times, sometimes up to 50 times.Before zass, using spamfighter, this problem did not exist.
    I use MS outlook 2002.I use several emailadresses.For every emailaddress
    a different
    folder exists.
    To organize incoming emails
    a

    rule places
    the email in its respective folder.
    Does anyone recognize this?
    Thanks


    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    I hate to tell you this, but the multiple identical emails,is not a ZoneAlarm problem. I get the same thing, and I am using Thunderbird for an e-mail client, and don't use the junk filter in ZA, but I use mailwasher. I have never gotten as many as 50, but I have gotten as many as 10.

    Thanks for answering Hoov.
    Have you got a possible explanation for the fact that before installing zass, and using spamfighter,
    this problem did not occur?

    Are you using the challenges feature in the junk filter?

    No, do not use the challenges filter. Must I?

    Nope. Just seeing if that was possibly the cause. I think there is possibly a bad release of spamming software. I use different software and get them. I think in your case it is purely coincidental.
