Change to Spam Dictionary?

Did Mcafee make a change to the Spam Dictionary in the last 10 days?

I am seeing emails getting quarantined used to not be.

When I look at the Email report "SS_SUBJ_MSG_REP=3.5".

Example: a gmail email with a subject of "RE: Claims" got quarantined with a total score of 4.8.

I did make some changes to my spam scores but only changed from 5.0 to 4.2.

I did spin up a test MEG and  "SS_SUBJ_MSG_REP=3.5" is not in the dictionary.  Test MEG is not connected to the internet.

Is  "SS_SUBJ_MSG_REP=3.5" enabled by default?

Re: Change to Spam Dictionary?

Just got off the phone with MEG support and they are aware of this issue.  I was told not to change anything on my MEG because Mcafee will being updating the Spam Rules version to address the false positives.

"SS_SUBJ_MSG_REP=3.5" was created to address the Snow Shoeing spam.  Which is when Spammers change the IP address that the spam is coming from.
