Spam bounced but still coming

On windows98 Outlook Express6 I keep getting an average of 25 spams daily. I delete and bouce back with Mailwasher. but they are still coming. I tried Cloudmark's Spamnet Beta for OE6 but it blocked OE from access to my ISP to retrieve mail, so I had to delete it. Any other good reliable spam stopper?

Do NOT bounce back spam. It never goes to the sender and just clogs up the net. I'm sure someone will recommend a good stopper but personally, I would just hit the delete button for 25 emails.

Everything that GANDALF <|:-)> says is spot on.

One other thing, since ditching Incredimail, my spam has gradually dropped from about 50 a day to only one or two. I don't know why, but I have my supicions....!

In fact, I was just thinking that Mailwasher bouncing is a waste of time. I will try deleting only for a while and C,
