I have placed close to 100 email filters on my primary domain. But they do not seem to work, I am getting just as much spam as I ever did and with the stuff that is supposed to be filtered !

after I enter the filters, is ther anything I need to do like restart the server or something ? any advice would be appreciated.

Hello,

You'd need to view the source code of the emails to verify that you're actually filtering what they've written. Many spammers are getting quite crafy and doing things like:

<font>v</font><font>i</font><font>a</font><font>g</font><font>r</font><font>a</font>

which will show up as "viagra" in your email, but won't be cought by the filters.. You'd have to add <font>v</font>... etc. into the filter in order for it to be blocked.

Bottom line, you'll need to view the source of the email to see how the words are actually written.
