Stop Foreign Language Spam – McAfee MxLogic

While the Email Protection Service does not have a direct method to filter messages in foreign languages, you can set a content filter to catch these messages based on the character set.
Please follow these instructions to minimize these messages:
1. Login to the Control Console to access your account
2. Click Email Protection
3. Select Policies
4. Double-click the desired inbound policy
5. Select Content
6. Select the Custom Content Groups sub-tab
7. Under content groups press the NEW button to create a new group
8. Name the group with a name that will make sense to you for later reference and enter the character set specified in the header (for example -“koi8-r” for Russian/Cyrillic) into the keyword box (NOTE -do not include the quotations)
9. Select the desired corrective action: Quarantine, Deny, Tag Subject, Allow, None
10. After finishing your choices press SAVE
11. Press SAVE again to complete the action and allow up to 15 minutes for the changes to take effect.

The following list is the Character Set codes for most of the available Character Sets, grouped by language or region. It is recommended that when using Character Set codes in a filter that extreme caution be used, and use only the Character Sets absolutely needed to block unwanted mail.
When including the Character Sets in a policy, do not include the “charset=” portion, as this is left in only for reference.
