SUBJECT in regex

I do not need a solution (just sharing information)


At this moment there is a spam  outbreak at our company. The problem is the filtering for this spam. The only way to recognise it is by the name of the attachment wich contains a part of the subject.

The attachment has a name like nolan234.pdf and the subject wil be like p.bakker : nolan234.pdf .

My idea was to create an regex filter wich uses the first part of the attachment (nolan24) and check if the last part off the subject contains this name. (could also be vice versa.. check if the attachment uses the last part of the subject).

But how to use the variable made from the subject is an regex ? is it possible to get a part of the subject.. put it in a variable and use it in a regex ?

Whe use Symantec Mail security for Exchange 7.5.6

Thanx in advance
