Besides looking for language character sets in the MIME content-type section of the Internet header, you may also try and block the mail-from address of the sender.

So, put in either a message or content filter that drops the mail is the mai-from ends with the country code, i.e. mail-from == "\.(ru|cz|uk)$"

This is assuming that your company has a policy of not accept mail from certain languages.

Is there an easy way to block all russian spam?  Basically I would just like to drop anything that is formated in russian.

I'm having serious problems with russian spam though I've have a filter dropping all messages with Content-type header or body containing windows-1251 string.

Some messages are dropped, but the filter is failing when the message is a multipart and some parte has the Content-type, like this:

How should I modify the filter to stop that stuff?

Thank you:
