    For years they have had limited access to outiside web sites, etc. Now it seems every other spam message, which the filters are being slow to respond to, are Chinese in origin.

    Goddamn Mongolians!

    Mail Marshall.

    They're not selling the same type of stuff as Nigeria or American sourced spam. One spammer was selling everying from applicances to zinc. It may very well be legit avertising for an export business, but it has nothing to do with our company. Another one is looking for Domain Name registrations for China held root names. Again, nothing really illegal, just unwanted mail.

    It's that it's not catching any of it, I just think it's a brand new category of spam.
