#30 Detection of bible spam needed


I don't know how to name that type of spam ... so please accept my apologies for that summary.

Since some moths now, I receive a nasty type of spam which both my provider's spam filter and SpamPal fail to detect.

The subject line and the body of the mail consist at thhe first glance of a snippet from the bible (I suspect ... at least it's a religous speech), but are completely meaningless. Maybe it's simply a compile bunch of words from such a text, judging on the selection of words (i.e. Lord, thou, thee) which preferably can be found in english bibles.

I don't know how to detect this scrap, but it's nasty.

If needed, I can supply lots of these messages for analysis.

    Merkosh1, please post sample mail bodies and headers including SpamPal.

    These mails could probably be caught by using the plugin RegExFilter and add a few of these words. If at least x of them occur mark the mail as spam.
    Another approach is using the Bayesian plugin which rates words and since they are very specific and not normally used in daily personal mails it should detect them pretty easy.

    To be honest, this is more a support question which could have been posted on spampalforums.org first.
