A week ago I Downloaded Windows Server 2008, 180 day Trial on my other Computer. Duly installed Office and started using Outlook for E:Mails. So far I have received NO Junk Mail or Spam. Which most will agree is unusual, if this continues why cannot the same be applied to XP, Visa Windows 7 etc etc. I have installed NO special Security Software whatsoever.

Any thioughts ?

Given Time when your mail address is circulated it will be just as bad as the others

woodchip is right :)

Ah ! But I used exactly the same E:Mail Address

Oh and I should have adde that when I went back to my other Computer after about 4/5 days there was the usual load of Rubbish.

So I repeat "Interesting" why can't this happen on XP VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 ?

Windows Server 2008 must have an inbuilt Antispam Filter that is turned on by default.

So why not in XP, Vista & Windpows 7 ?

Though when you look at the Price of some Editions of Server 2008 perhaps I can answer my own question.
