Quote: "Brightmail does not sell its services directly to individuals, you can gain protection and control of your email by signing up with one of many ISPs that subscribe to Brightmail Anti-Spam and Brightmail Anti-Virus".
Thanks for that. I've taken the plunge and signed up at £4.99 for the first year it must be worth it, even if it only stops 75%. I was receiving about 200 spam a week.
I did have mailwasher installed, and although I could view e-mail headers before downloading them to my computer it still meant reading through the subject heading to vet and delete. Using Tiscali Secure Mail meant I had to uninstal Mailwasher.
I shall repost in about two weeks to let you know how Secure Mail turns out.
