A year or so ago we had a huge flood of spam that was related to LinkedIn. We ended up adding a keyword filter to block all mail that contained the word "LinkedIn" in the subject or body. However, lately we're having more and more legitimate business customers and third parties add a linkedin signature in their messages which then get blocked by the spam filter when they send mail to us.

Does anyone have any suggestions for filtering out only the spam versions of these messages without blocking the legitimate messages?

Did you try teaching the fingerprint filter on those messages already?
Do these mails come from a few domains only?

We don't have the latest version of the software that comes with the fingerprint filter. So no, we haven't tried that.
