Spam Killers!!

I am currently using Mailwasher to check for Spam etc

Is there a better piece of software that will help keep the "spam from the door" - I suddenly seem to have been inundated by Viagra emails, Nigerian pleas for money laundering, etc

I've been looking at spamassassin for Linux, I think they do a Windows version.

Just one point about MailWasher, don't bounce emails, it just confirms your email address, thereby opening the floodgates for more spam, spam, lovely spam.

Thanks for that - I have been bouncing them unfortunately so no wonder they keep coming back!! Must try something different

Oh. OK don't bounce and stick with Mailwasher, its a good program, you should find the spam will reduce if you just delete them.

Good luck.
