  • Maybe I am wrong. But as far as I can see, Kevin, this mail is using Google mail's environment. So some DKIM protection by gmail ...

    Use "Verified Answers" if your problem/issue has been solved!

  • Email content... Clearly unsolicited / SPAM. No links:

  • The subject says, "What SMG rule would you use to block this type of spam". DMARK/DKIM/SPF will only help if the FROM address is forged. It won't help if the spam actually originates from Gmail.Wink

  • You can't prevent all spam.

    If you filter out all malware, spam links, backlisted IP addresses, DMARK/DKIM/SPF violations, etc., that will get rid if a lot. The anti spam filter should get rid of most known spam but there will always be new ones that BitDefender does not yet know about.

    You could quarantine email containing specific keywords if certain types if spam are bothersome.
