Description

14 years ago
I'm receiving several large emails a day -- sometimes dozens -- from the
W32.Mimail worm.

While I don't much care from a security point of view, since I'm not running a
platform that it targets, if I mark it as 'junk' (as often as I like) it still
never gets 'learned' by Mozilla MailNews' spam filter and always gets through,
despite having a very characteristic unobscufated opening paragraph (and then an
attachment -- I don't know if the attachment is randomized).

I think that the spam filter really should be able to 'learn' this spam.

Ah, sorry for the double-report, bugzilla was taking so long that I resubmitted
(with bonus spelling fix).
