Anti Spam Software Advice

  [DELETED] 11:47 10 Dec 2003

I'm getting huge amounts of spam each day.

I have set e-mail filters in outlook but have had little success in cutting out the amount of spam I get - I could be more strict with the rules but I'm worried about losing legitimate messages.

Included in this spam is marketing material from many different Anti-Spam software vendors.

I'm use win 98 and use outlook express.

Are any of these Anti-Spam products effective and if so which ones?

Anyone who Spams you anti Spam solutions is part of the problem.

Try a free product like POPCORN click here which can be used to filter and delete SPAM on the mail server rather than waiting for it to download and then be farmed off to a SPAM folder.

Mailwasher click here is a good pay for solution too...

Doe's your ISP run an anti-spam service, most are nowadays. Perhaps worth consulting them, so that it is cut off [partly] at their end.

Stevie D - am in the same boat; use ntl and my account gets 100+ spam emails a day !!! Spooky enough, just been reading ntl's policy on spam, not very helpful, just links to spam filters.

I find the FREE Mailwasher program to be quite adequate when dealing with spam.

Could only get free Mailwasher as a 30 day trial and then switched to Mailwasher pro. So far no spam and very easy to set up. Used to get several hundred a DAY before!
