Blank-ish Spam Mail

Strangely enough I am getting a lot of spam which has no message content. It just has some silly spam message in the subject header but no actual content.
I've been trying to write a Mail.app rule which will filter any mail that I receive which has no content but I haven't been able to get it working.
Can anybody help me write a suitable rule?
Many thanks for your help,
Damien

The from is a different tele-communications company server each time, but so far a common theme is the Return-path is blank.
I would recommend the following rule addition, not perfect but is a start.
In your rule select "If <any> ..."
The first condition select "Edit Header List..."
Add the Header called "Return-path", exactly.
Now, input as your selection "Return-path" "Contains" ""
I tend to move items to a "Quarantine" folder to be checked later, but you can add your own action.
I checked into all of my inbound email and archives using this rule, and the only ones with no return-path are these recent blank junk mails and automated notifications/messages from mac.com servers.

  • How can I get spam mail sent straight to trash on my iPad and iPhone.  Have managed to set rules on my iMac but not the rest.

    How can I set up rules to get spam emails sent straight to my trash when I am using an iPhone4S or iPad3?  Have managed to do this on my iMac but can't see a way to do it on the other devices.  Getting about 50 a day recently using my email address but not my name in the messages - no idea why this has started but it is annoying!!

    You cannot set rules on the iPad or the iPhone for mail. The only thing that you can do is to filter spam mail in your webmail settings using a web browser. The rules that set up in the mail app on the Mac do not sync across devices, those are rules for inside the mail client itself on the Mac.

  • Blackberry's automatic delivery notification encourages spam mail.

    To anyone who is listening, please either disable the Blackberry's automatic delivery notification, or give us Blackberry users the option to change it to manual delivery notification requiring our approval before delivery notification is sent.
    Spammers harvest the email addresses and the automatic delivery notification tells them that they sent spam to a good/valid address.
    My wife and I both noticed that since we started using the Blackberry, the number of spam mail has progressively increased.  Today, I discovered why.  I noticed in the sent mail log, that the Blackberry is sending out delivery notification automatically each time an email is opened/read.  A lot of times, I can't figure out if something is junk until I open up the email.  That's when the Blackberry sends delivery notification.  Sure, the spammers request delivery notification, that's how they can confirm whether their junk mail reached the intended party.  And thus, they harvested a valid email address that they use for the next spam mail.  The Blackberry makes it too easy for the spammer to validate a good delivery email address, and for mail that's being forwarded from a "disposable address" to my real address, now the spammers get to harvest my real email address when the Blackberry includes it in their delivery notification.
    So please, please disable the automatic delivery notification.  Let me decide who I will send delivery notification.
    Thank you in advance!

  • TS4002 iCloud emails message body showing blank in Mac mail.

    The content of emails (message body) is sometimes blank in Mac mail but visible on both my iPhone and iCloud. I can't seem to find a fix?

    Strange that this is such an old thread - seems like the problem has popped up again here.

  • Spam mails are not deleted from the spam folder

    In the account settings, I have set the spam mail to be automatically deleted after one day. In spite of that, spam mail in the spam folder is not automatically deleted at any time, even if I restart Thunderbird. In the end, I always have to clean the spam folder manually.

    Thanks for your quick answers!
    I realized that I didn't select the option 'enable adaptive junk mail controls for this account', but, even selecting it, the junk mails are not automatically cleaned. I tried restarting Thunderbird, restarting the computer, and even manually changing the date and restarting Thunderbird, but nothing worked.
    I checked the entries in the advanced configuration, and they are all correct.
    My aim, as it was with the other problem I posted, is just to help to improve the development of Thunderbird by pointing the bugs. But they are actually really minor issues and not a real problem for me. So don't worry if the problem is not finally solved.
    And thanks again!

  • HT4061 I am receiving return e-mails saying undeliverable mail was sent using my e-mail addy as the "from" addy. It is spam mail and some has been sent to U.S. military. It is not coming directly from my e-mail/ i-cloud account. How do I stop it?

    I am receiving returne postmaster e-mails saying e-mails were not deliverable, and some say they were blocked as being spam mail because they were sent to U.S. military addresses. The e-mails are coming from an outside source and are not being sent directly from my e-mail, but whoever is doing it is putty my address in as the sender. How do I stop this?

    at this point the best you could do would be to delete your email account, or ignore the emails

  • HT204053 I need to change my email account, i get alot of spam mail

    I get a lot of spam mail,  what should I do?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    I have asked for your email address to be edited out. Posting your address in an open thread is a sure way to be bombarded by unwanted email, remember it will be here long after you have resolved your problem, for automated detection software to find.
    If you want people to contact you, enable others to see your email address in your profile.
    Firstly, you need to change your details with Apple,  Start here, change your country if necessary and go to manage your account.
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your iOS device, you need to delete the account from your iOS device first, then add it back using your updated details. (Settings > iCloud, scroll down and hit "Delete Account")
    Providing you are simply updating your existing details and not changing to another account, when you delete your account, all the data that is synced with iCloud will also be deleted from the device (but not from iCloud), but will be synced back to your device when you login again.
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your computer, you need to sign out of the account from your computer first, then sign back in using your updated details. (System Preferences > iCloud, click the sign out button)
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iTunes account on your iOS device, you need to sign out from your iOS device first, then sign back in using your updated details. (Settings > store, scroll down and tap your ID)

  • How to tag spam mails in iron port and foreword to junk folder?

    How to tag spam mails in iron port and foreword to junk folder? 

    As Dave has suggested.
    Positively identified spam recommended actions would be to Drop it -- if you would like to review these emails and manually remove it, then send it to the spam quarantine 
    This can be changed under the GUI > Mail Policies > Click on Incoming or Outgoing mail Policies and edit the anti-spam settings per policy if needed.
    Ideally suspected spam to be sent to the quarantine for further review.
    If you do not wish to use a quarantine or drop the email, you can prepend the email as Dave also suggested and send it to the end recipient under [Suspected Spam] <Subject> for the end user to determine it.
    However the IronPort will not make specific rules to deliver it to the MUA's Junk mail folder.
    This type of setup is normally down to each specific end user to work with on their own MUA  (outlook, lotus, safari etc.)
    I hope this helps.
    Regards,

    Hi,
    You need to track down the source of the emails by
    locating the relevant mail.log lines that correspond
    to the email delivery attempt. This will at least
    tell you how they are getting in (whether the email
    is coming in via the
    tcp_local/tcp_auth/tcp_submit/tcp_intranet channel
    etc.).07-Sep-2007 19:13:44.02 tcp_auth tcp_local EA 3 [email protected] rfc822;[email protected] [email protected] User ([210.70.82.129])

    >
    From there you can determine (if you have enough
    logging enabled such as LOG_USERNAME=1,
    LOG_CONNECTION=1, LOG_MESSAGE_ID=1) why they emails
    are being allowed through... After enabling the three parameters (option.dat and did cnbuild/restart),
    i noticed lot of such entries in mail.log_current:

  • Since upgrading to OS X version 10.9, I have been receiving more Spam Mail which looks as if I've sent a Messages to Myself. How can I prevent this embarrassing mail reaching me?

    Since upgrading to OS X version 10.9 (Mavericks). I have been receiving more Spam Mail which looks as if I've sent a Messages to Myself. How can I prevent this embarrassing mail reaching me?

    in Safari, certain
    characters like hyphens and apostrophes appear as
    black diamonds with question marks.
    This has nothing to do with fonts. It usually happens when your encoding is set wrong for a specific page. Panther Safari did not show these diamonds, but just displayed nothing, so people get the impression something has changed, but it really hasn't.
    In Safari, I'm using Unicode (UTF-8) as my default
    encoding. Is this setting correct?
    Not if you keep running into pages with black diamonds. It would be better to set your default to Western ISO Latin 1. The black diamonds will probably go away.

    I receive 5-10 spam mails per day and, although they go into my junk mail folder, I don't like receiving them.  I had a yahoo email account and had to delete it b/c of all the spam mail.  I typically add the sender and domain to my block sender list, then delete the email.  Is there any way I can prevent this spam from coming in at all?  I was hoping there was a better filter on the verizon website.

     You can set your spam detector to delete messages rather than save them in the spam folder. If you have a legitimate message filtered by accident though, there won't be a way to recover it.

  • My e-mail account is sending out spam mails; how can i delete the virus?

    My e.mail account is sending out spam mails; I have got a spam virus probably during download of my e.mails over the i phone. How can i detect and delete the virus?

    You do not have a virus on your Mac or iPhone.
    An AOL account is accessed as an IMAP account with the Mail app or email client on your Mac, and with the iPhone's Mail app. The sent spam messages being available in the account's Sent mailbox means your AOL account has been compromised.
    Change the password for your AOL email account.
