Using Outlook Express 6 is there anyway one can stop Spam getting through I have tried using Message “Create Rule from Message” & “Block Sender” all to no avail
I don’t like receiving Spam as some of the contents are offensive especially with young ones around. I have tried my ISP Tiscali for help but all they give you is a number to ring & been slightly deaf I don’t understand what they are saying

I am using Windows XP Pro

Spr, Get in touch with me via yellow envelope
and I`ll send you a CD with a free version of a spam killer. Please be aware that I am genuine, and that no harm will come to you or yours by doing as I ask. But remember I need an address to send the CD to. Up to you.

K9 click here is a good programme for spam. Comes with a set-up/start-up guide to make things easier.

If you have NTL in your area, then they do filter for spam. I used to get about 60 per day until NTL introduced this free service - as a result I get about 3 per day.

Norton AntiSpam is also good, it does not stop spam - it automaticaly sends them to a spam folder - it is a simple matter to delete them.

bluto1, why not post the link, if it is a free spam killer why not sharee it with others on this forum who may benefit by it...

Mailwasher works

Just don't ever bounce spam. That's a sure way to multiply by 10

Move from OE6 to Mozilla Thunderbird..:-)

Apart from the virtual disappearance of any requirement to constantly update OE (and the same with Mozilla Firefox in contrast to Internet Explorer), Thunderbird has a Junk filter than you can "train" to automatically and instantly send unwanted e-mails to the Junk folder.

See:

You are able to import your OE and (in the case of Firefox) IE configuration and settings either whilst installing Thunderbird or later as necessary.
