Spam Emails

By john.cb1 ·
I am getting 200 to 300 emails a day, most of it is porn and adverts (Spams).

I have tried to block the sender and create rule for message using Outlook Express but it still lets spam emails.

Is there a good spam killer software that i could use to stop these spams.

check out CoffeeCup Spam Filter. try before you buy for $30. free upgrades for life. get it from www.tucows.com search for 'spam filter'. following is excerpt from sales pitch (ps i vote against doing the bounce back emails to spammers as it won't help and just makes more clogged mail servers. i think this spam is going to cost us more from our isp's soon....

Are you using MS Hotmail. I had to create all my rules/filters on the web site for them to work. I hope this helps

The problem with doing the spam killing at your end is that you still receive these over your connection.

I recommend going with an email provider who offers better spam blocking at the POP server. There are a number of them available, from free to big bucks.

Yahoo pushes most of the spam into a bulk folder you will have to empty on a regular basis. You also need to put any newsletters, many automated services, and emails with large distribution addresses in your Yahoo address book or they may be diverted to bulk as well. You can filter out domains, and add 50 other filters as well. They have added "disposable" addresses to make it harder for spammers to find you.

MSN (Hotmail) also lets you control which emails come to you. You can limit it to addresses in your address book, or block addresses or domains.

Do a Google search on "email service+spam control" to get a large list of options.

there are a couple of free ones at download.com
http://download.com.com/sort/3120-2001-0-1-3.html?qt=spam&author=&titlename=&desc=&li=49&os=&swlink=


also norton has a product too.

the best thing to do however is to have 2 email adress one for your trustworthy contacts and another for dubious ones or information that you have to enter at websites , etc.
