Stopping GIF spam in Thunderbird

      No Comments on Stopping GIF spam in Thunderbird

I’ve been deluged with spam lately with the attached GIF files. The GIF
files are even using OCR defeating technology now!!! Gag. I don’t have Spam
Bayes or other advanced spam filtering implemented at the moment, so what am I to do?

I just found this web site that details how to create a message filter
that really helps and has great step by step instructions. It doesn’t
actually look for a GIF attachment but looks for email that is
multi-part and the sender isn’t in any address book. What can I say
except that it seems to work! (for the time being. {g})
