Mailwasher crashing

I have isolated a message that is causing MailWasher to crash when it attempts to process it. What can I do with it?

Re: Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

[:^ascii:] didn't catch a \u00AE (Ascii 174) ( https://unicode-table.com/en/#00AE ). Looks like I'll have to deal with that one, and with \u00A9 (Ascii 169) ( https://unicode-table.com/en/#00A9 ) separately. I haven't gotten a glut of foreign subject lines this weekend like I usually do, so I haven'...

Re: Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

Doh! And here I was thinking the output was immediate. Given that I only need to confirm the presence of even one non-ASCII character, I believe a rule of "Subject Containing [:^ascii:]" should work. Fingers crossed, I'll report back once I have a few more garbage e-mails, likely after the weekend...

Re: Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

I tried using [:ascii:], but it doesn't seem to be working. Can I use Regex Match Tracer to test this? Foreign Subject.rws - Regex Match Tracer.png I would have expected that the first English character would have matched...? (I should have used [:ascii:].* if I wanted all of them, but that doesn't ...

Re: Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

We're already using _all_ of those filters (we have no clients in non-English countries), and it's still not filtering these crafty e-mails. By limiting the Subject line to use only English characters, with only a few exceptions, we hope to avoid non-English messages as well as any message that atte...

Re: Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

[^:ascii:] seems to help a lot -- I'll continue testing with the special characters (like © and ® and special dashes) and see if I can get it to be reliable.

Other ideas also appreciated...

Regex help request: Filter Only English characters.

We're getting a lot of spam using Chinese character sets, so I set out to devise a subject line filter that passes only if it contains only English characters. The problem is that it is tripping occasionally on 100% pure English subject lines. I'm looking for help with this. The RegEx is as follows:...

Re: Custom Mailwasher Filters: compare portion of one field to portion of another field

Thanks for the reply. This is exactly the conclusion I had come to, but I had a very experienced user assert that it was do-able, without providing details.

Some other day, with some other version, maybe.

Re: MailWasher Pro doesn't start

I had a look at the Task Manager (I use Process Explorer), and it says that the MailWasherPro.exe service is Suspended, and I can't resume it, because it is "Unable to suspend the process." (and yes, that is the message, not "resume" but "suspend") If I try terminating the process, I get "Error term...

MailWasher Pro doesn't start

Not sure what has happened with our installation, but MailWasher Pro is refusing to start, getting stuck on the main loading splash screen. We have uninstalled and reinstalled, both with retaining user settings and clearing user settings, no difference. Can anyone offer any suggestions? :dead Window...

Re: From, X-Sender and Reply-To all point to different domains.

TrustFire, you suggest that it is possible to compare the results of a function to the results of another function. If it is, could you please elaborate?

Re: From, X-Sender and Reply-To all point to different domains.

...but, how? When I look at creating the filter, I can pick a field to process, but I don't see what the syntax is like to compare against a different field?

Re: From, X-Sender and Reply-To all point to different domains.

I think we are agreeing, but we're getting stuck on the terminology. I don't want to play "whack-a-mole" with domain names. There are thousands of them, and most of the time they are fictitious. I just want to compare the text of "From: Bob@[----A----]" to "Reply-To: Bill@[----B----]" and "Return-Pa...
