Blocking suggestions? Hidden words in the subject lines

Is McAfee / Trusted Source aware of this new type of subject lines?

The subject line is cleverly disguised using international characters.

Examples:

Subject:  ẄIɲḋȮẃṢ ŝOƒtẆḀŘἝ ƒṜỆἘ

Subject:  ОῄḸἼ ñε ṔᾘẰřṂӐC-Ÿ

In case you have trouble "seeing" the words, the first example says "Windows Software Free" and the second example is "Online Pharmacy".

GIve this a try:

  1. Enable “Contains lotof 8 bit charters” under Anti-Spam > Anti-Spam Advanced > System DefinedHeader Analysis. This is under the subject section. Put 100 points in the pointbox and check the enable check box, click submit.
  2. Enable “the abilityto convert the MIME framework file to UTF-8” This is under Queue Manager >Configure Queues > MIME Ripper > Special Handling > check the box for “theability to convert the MIME framework file to UTF-8” click submit.
