Re: [PLUG] weird mozilla spam issue

I use mozilla (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040514) for my MUA.

I have noticed that some spam -- that isn't caught by the filter -- gets automatically marked as read. This is advertising mail, not viral vectors. Have the spammers figured out some protocol that does this, or has anyone heard about this as a mozilla problem?

I have Mozilla 1.7.2 and I have noticed the same. It's mildly annoying, but it doesn't really make the spam more effective.

BTW, I see that you didn't upgrade.  ;-)
