Getting SpamDetector to Work
Contributor - Level 1

I have two home e-mail accounts and have SpamDetector turned on for both.  It used to work moderately well and caught 60 to 75% of the spam.   Starting in October 2014, SpamDetector stopped catching anything.  There is one specific e-mail account that I blocked in my wife's account that it catches, but that is all.

I have read all of the articles and posts I could find on this site - all to no avail.  I have a workaround that helps somewhat.  I put some filters on the server at which help, but they don’t catch everything and they block all BCC’d e-mails.  My wife receives a fair number of smaller, "low-tech" newsletters that rely on the BCC function.  Because she is an elected official, she needs to be certain that she gets these.

We regularly get 40 to 60 spam e-mails per day, so this is more than just a minor inconvenience.  Any help that you can offer will be appreciated.
