After spending some several years on SED as a non participant, I have read
many a post about the amount of spam one can receive (and lord only knows I
get my share - 30 a Day) and requests on how to deal with it.
I finally snapped the other day, I received an email that had an animated
GIF of an unnatural act occurring between a women and a horse. I am aware
that many on this news group do not find profanity just, but Fuck IT - when
I start receiving emails that contain bestiality I have had enough.
I had previously looked into *GOOD* spam filters, but they are not available
to the general public (must be an ISP or a good size company $$$).
After many months I found a company called Cloudmark that offer a free Spam
filter called Spam net.
Try it out, I am delighted with the results - it actually works. Cloudmark
somewhat cheat - they use the responses from their freeware product to
maintain a list of Spam signatures, this is then sold to their highend
customers that use their ISP software.
It works for me - but is only available for Outlook.
Just wanted to pass it along, ARW (Lewin) and others had a beef with being
spammed by a company - the way Spam net works is if they block the email it
will be blocked by all other recipients using the software.
Food for Thought.
PS. No I didn't post a link to the sofware, otherwise some asshole Troll
will start to attack. Look it up on google.
