Block Languages

Block Languages:


Effectiveness: Medium-High


Advantages:  Will block messages with character sets from languages that you do not know.  For instance, if you don't speak Chinese and do not exchange email with anyone from China, it may be beneficial to block messages that use Chinese character sets, since these would most likely only come from spammers in your particular case.


Limitations:  Is not very effective if you email with people from many countries even if they use English to converse with you as they may make use of these character sets. However, if they are in your Friends list they will bypass this filter.


Recommendations:  We recommend enabling this for most users.  Be careful not to block the Unicode and some of the other listed character sets as these are usually very widely used character sets.
