Angry How to deal with SPAM ?

sponsored links

 
To quote someone on another forum, they said -
Quote:
I have a few hundred email filters on, but I keep getting more and more spam. No matter how many filters... I get at least 30 spam mails per day, and I put more filters on for each piece of spam (when I can, without potentially blocking legit stuff).
I never show my email address anyway, I'm sick to death of this, Is there anything I can do? I thought of just closing my current email accounts, and starting a new one, but I think that would be just too inconvenient.
Nowadays all web-surfers understand this problem all too well, as I suspect, many do here, so maybe any advice on how to deal with it, could be collated in this post for all to see, while also possibly, a moderator could arrange for it to become a 'sticky' on each board
- or at least for a month or two.

I think then this idea of mine would benefit most people here, as i feel its getting worse these days...

PS- If I here of any new advice about this, i'll certainly add my info as i'm currently researching this matter.

'good luck to you all

I have no filters, and don't get that much spam through e-mail, i do seem to be getting more and more through my mobile phone though - that is flippin pain in the rear.

Roger, IS Mail Washer worthwhile ??. The feature I liked was that
it returns the e-mail as if from the ISP ,so eventually
you should get taken of mailing lists etc. Is that working for you ?

Other main concern is, how do you know for certain that its
not returning important e-mails that are not spam ??.

Thanks for any advice

Frank

Default spamkiller

I was receiving up to 30 **** messages a week on one of my email accounts although on my other isp i received none.

Complaing to the ISP was a waste of time.

I then fitted Spamkiller 4 cost 17 and told it just to send me emails from my friends.
It works a treat.

If you tell it to send all Emails you receive Spam as well as Friends.
