This is supposed to be good click here

I haven't used it myself. I mark them as junk mail in Outlook and "block" them in my Hotmail account.

VoG is right, it's a good program. It has the added feature of bouncing the email back to the sender telling them your email don't exist.

VoG™ is correct, Mailwasher is effective. click here gives the version which willl handle Hotmail.

Thanks a million - I didn't think it worked with Hotmail.

The link is to the last full free version - now no longer available from Mailwasher.com. For reasons that even I don't fully understand I have five mail accounts, one for Scotland, one for England, Hotmail and a couple spare. I find it useful to be able to set Mailwasher to check them all regularly, which this version can do, the 'new' free version only handles one account.

I have Mailwasher (the paid for version) but I was still getting anything up to 50 spam emails every day with my BT Talk21 account, before I changed my account to BTinternet with their Email Protection service. The main advantage with Mailwasher is the ability to view headers from which it is easy to distinguish the content. I have just had a quick look at my Talk21 account online, which hasn't been closed yet by BT, and there are over 200 spam mails waiting there which have accumulated over just a few days. Not sure if the so called 'bouncing' of emails is making a lot of difference. The spammers just send them out again with slightly modified addresses. I still use Mailwasher though to intercept anything that BT misses (3 so far in a week) and would recommend it to you as others have done.

I don't know if Spam Pal will work in Incredimail, but in OE it is marvellous. If you don't have the PCA disc with it on click here

Just checked my Talk21 account again before it is suspended - now 355 spam emails listed.
