Help!!! They are driving me crazy with the spam. I am getting upwards od 600 a day and it is getting worse. I run a website and it would seem that most of it is aimed at me through that, but its nothing to get 50 of the same e-mails from supposedly different addresses and sent to different names all with the same suffix, i.e. my e-mail address. I don't want Viagra, mortgages, loans, fake diplomas or any of the other rubbish. I use IE and have the filters on with perhaps half of the rubbish going straight into the deleted items folder, but occasionaly a valid e-mail slips through and I need to look through them.
Any ideas out there, I know what a bright lot you are, you have helped out before. Thanks.

Hi terryr48 thanks for trying. I downloaded mailwasher but found it difficult to set up. I tried but got an error message. so need either detailed instructions or something simpler. To tell the truth I had no idea where to find half the information they were looking for.

I am a "new-convert" to Mailwasher, at the encouragement and help of another forum member as I got fed up with the very small spam and rubbish i get my way "inviting me" to partake of stuff that I felt almost boardering on the obsene . I was very sceptical about beign able to set it up and use it, but with a little (???!!!)support and encouragement I "got there", adn now, if I am not quite sure about a message, I can "preview" it ..then chuck it if necessary.....i am sure if you want to try again you will get support from the forum to do it, and step-by-step instructions with where to find the information you need for each stage if that is what you need and would like to do and try.. ...........

To terryr48, stallion, end, & Belatucadrus I would like to say a hearty thanks. It has been some time since I received your good advice, and I did have a few problems setting up "MAILWASHER" but those were problems with ISP configurations and with the help from the makers, "Firetrust", we got it sorted. I have now given it a trial and am extremely pleased with it, so to all who gave good advice, THANK YOU>
