I am not finding problems from image spam, either.
SpamBayes seems to do a reasonable job of identifying it.
Like any spam, however, you have to train SpamBayes, so the first few from a
new source will require training, but by then, it is able to do a good job
of getting rid of it.

As a long-time SpamBayes user who finds that SpamBayes seems to be
relatively helpless against image spam, I'm looking for informed comment on
the following, received from Sunbelt

Does your Antispam solution catch Image Spam? Ninja Does!

Rather than using possibly unpredictable heuristics or computationally
expensive optical character recognition, Ninja uses fingerprinting
algorithms that generate identities from a single piece of content.
Leveraging the power of the Cloudmark engine, fingerprinting algorithms
offer the most efficient and robust Image Spam protection to date!

Can SpamBayes ever conquer image spam to ant substantial degree?
