BT Mail Spam Filter - non-alphanumeric characters

Has anyone else noticed that the BT Mail spam filter hardly ever identifies spam correctly where the sender or subject starts with a non-alphanumeric character?

 

For example:

 

▓▒░Plan My Funeral░▒▓ <code@Codeproject.com >

 

♠Solar♠ Panel ♠Prices♠ <pmo@Peets.com >

 

My inbox is littered with these every day and it makes no difference however often I mark them as spam. None of the other mail systems that I use has this trouble. If it's not just me is it possible for the mods to report it? Unfortunately I can't imagine getting a useful response reporting it any other way.

Re: BT Mail Spam Filter - non-alphanumeric characters

I'm havibg this issue too and have been for a while. I have tried using the blocked sender option once you have opened the mail but I have now hit the limit of blocked senders. Not sure how many that is but it won't let me add any more until i delete some.

 

Please help!!!

 

I'm thinking of dropping my email and creating a new one, or moving providers.....
