If there happens to be anyone out there unfamiliar with spam, we are not talking about the luncheon meat, but the unsolicited, junk e-mail that clogs our inboxes. And in case you are curious, according to some sources, the junk mail version of spam earned its name from a Monty Python skit regarding the luncheon meat of the same name. Care to sing along? - The Article

Nice writeup. I use OE's rules, blocking unsolicited email addresses(actual the entire domain from places I dont know) and I use the the rules to search for key words (rolex, viagra, cialis, investment, etc). All offenders go straight to deleted mail.

I'd suggest everyone checkout Spampal for free spam filtering with MANY plugin based configuration rule options, Baysian filtering and many others.

While it is always a work in progress changing thing, the software is stable 99% of the time (some e-mails with junk characters kill it for some reason). The author has always been VERY responsive, and I've donated to show my appreciation.

It works with every e-mail application I've used. It works in the following fashion:

you change your e-mail server to be 127.0.0.1 and then your login information would change, instead of having your login as just your name, it changes to name and domain on one line, for example, instead of "bud" as your login name it would be "bud@yahoo.com"

I've used it with PMMAIL and The Bat! (my current program of choice) it has auto config plugins for Outlook and 2-3 other popular programs also. Check it out guys, I think you'll be very satisfied with the results.

www.spampal.org or www.spampal.com (version 2 is apparently getting closer to release).

And for reference, I'm nothing more than a happy, 99.5% spam free user Smile
