spammed to death

IO'm being bombarded by spam about Viagra and increasing the size of my Johnson. I'm getting in excess of 10 a day from the same source but always with different details.

Can anyone suggest a way of blocking it. It's driving me crazy.

I would try the Viagra but I'm taking iron tablets and last time I mixed them I couldn't stop pointing North!

click here This does not do away with spam but allows you to view it on the server before downloading to you puter. Highly recommended in this forum

If it is driving you that mad you will not mind spending $29 or so on here. It is simple to set up and learns in three or four days. You can view thw messages before deletion just in case there is one that you want to keep.

I quite agree! All this spam just sticks in yer throat doesn't it? Which, in the case of viagra, causes a stiff neck!

Sorry to say the the only way I've found of controlling spam is to change my e-mail address. I now have an ISP e-mail address that I only give to family and friends and never, never give out to companies etc. I have another address for trusted web sites, like the bank for example, and a web accessed e-mail account for places I don't trust. The latter account gets dumped as the spam builds up.

Yup!! It's a real pain, as is a stiff neck.

All subjective of course but I use click here to good effect and it's easy to set up. It deletes all blacklisted spam and you are able to whitelist addresses you know are safe. Just add to the blacklist as and when necessary. It would be so nice to not have to bother but I'm still struggling to stop the junk comong through my letterbox.

Cheers Carl
