Hi to you.

I have my email addresses posted on my web site where they are found by trawlers. I get between 3 & 5 HUNDRED spam emails a DAY. My ISP marks nearly all of them as spam and I direct them to a seperate folder but still have to go through them because some legitimate emails are marked as smap and sent there too. I haven't found out how to stop them yet but will whatch this post to see if anyonr else has.

I have set up my own 'Spam Filter', very simply by creating rules for all the people I want to hear from to go into folders -e.g. family,friends,work etc.- and leave the rest in the inbox. A quick check through will normally spot any other mail I want to keep. I aso use 'subject' filters,i.e. competitions, space exploration, and a few other subjects that are occasional emails, are dropped into one box for checking.
