    I have recently been receiving a lot of spam from names such as Sport Q. Jaundice and Topic V. Lyceums (every name is different). The emails normally consist an opening line like Howdy:) or Adieu.

    Then there is a single graphic (normally drugs) and a graphical remove me type link.

    Because all of the text is in graphical format I don't see how I can enter any words into a rule set.

    Although these emails always slip through SA, Outlook always catches them and places them in the junk email folder.

    Has anyone else seen these emails? Is the a rule set to conquer them?

    Thanks.

    I don't know much about SA, so I'm generalising only, but I'm surprised it is missing them. Surely there must be a default rule that scores any message with no text as being spam? If not, there must be a rule someone else has already written that you could apply somehow...

    Check out the rulesets at Spam Assassin Rules Emporium. One of them I've installed takes care of this. (Maybe 70_sare_html*.cf, not sure, I forget.)

    HTH!

    I've installed that and I'll let you know how I get on.
