    OL 2013 -- filtering Chinese encoded email with an attachment

    This is in the nuisance category more than any real sort of danger. I get anywhere from 5-15 emails a day that have these 2 characteristics: they're Chinese-language emails and they have an attachment (usually Excel, but not always). I'm wondering if there's a way to create a Junk rule for this type of email. I've tried a few things:

    • searched this and other forums, and Google in general
    • looked through the rules criteria and don't see anything that will help
    • noticed the headers generally specify UTF-8, but never have I seen one specify Big-5 (I know those are different things; just saying I've seen one but not the other.)
    • I'm using Cloudmark as my SPAM-catcher, and it's not catching them. I click the Cloudmark Block button every time, but I don't think Cloudmark's learning from that.


    I'm not worried about possibly missing a legitimate email. They're not.

    Any tips?

    The OL 2013 native junk email filter could probably be of help, as it allows you to specify encodings to block, which would seem to fit your situation perfectly:

    Thanks for the suggestion. It sure seems like that would solve my problem, but as it turns out I had forgotten that I had already done that. In fact, I had Chinese already blocked, as well as several other languages, and those emails are still getting through. I changed my Junk settings on the Options tab, so we'll see if that has any effect.
