24672Re: Disposable addresses use Spamguard even though option not checked
- Apr 10, 2013Yes, thanks, "X-Apparently-To:" does work.
The whole point for me of disposable addresses is to keep mail flowing in completely spam free. The moment I see any spam, I terminate that email address. Spamguard is just an annoyance.
I wish Yahoo just had an option to completely turn off Spamguard (as it did in the past). It provides zero (in fact negative) value to me, and probably for a lot of people.
With gmail you can create a filter that says, if it's detected as spam, don't process it as spam, ha-ha, effectively turning off spam detection.

I'm not sure why they got rid of it as I'd say 99% of the spam I get goes to one address which made it much easier to find false positives and unfiltered spam messages.
