is it me or has there been a dramatic increase in the amount of spam emails going round over the last week or so, i've been getting everything from would i like to increase the size of my p***s (50 in one day) to loan consolidation, credit repair, bulk email addresses and some quiet unplesant ones. i use mailwasher to filter all these out but have noticed that on quiet a few that mailwasher can't bounce them as it tells me that the sender doesn't have a valid email address, the bulk of these appear to come from yahoo.com / co.uk addresses and others that you can tell are made up addresses. is any one else suffering as well.

I could have written the post you made above, myself. I am suffering exactly the same problems. The amount of filth I am getting is unbelievable!
My mistake was letting the b******s get a hold of two of my email addresses from newsgroup postings before I learned sense about disguising the real addresses!

ive been using spampal and so far its been great but ive had a few from usa.net this week and even though ive put on the blacklist they still get through.

I have had a similar experience. I have now set my Outlook filter to permanently delete the spam that is detected by SpamPal. It now does not bothr me in the least. I have had one or two that were not detected but I have added them to my blacklist. If I don't recognise the domain name I widcard it so that nothing from that domain gets through.

I use Spamnet from cloudmark which intergrates into outlook's tool bar. When you get spam, if it recognises it, it imeadiatly confines it to a spam folder for your distruction at a later date. If it dosn't then you hit a button on your tool bar and it notifies the system at cloudmark and places it on a spam list. Or, you could use mailwasher, which allows you to look at your mailbox before downloading into outlook/outlook express et all, and it gives you the chance to delete or bounce back to sender.

It's a point I have made before, but why do some people get dozens of spams a week and others get hardly any? Pappyon seems to be blaming it on newsgroups. Anybody linking with Kazaa would appear to get what they deserve. My daughter, down for Easter, checked her Hotmail address and I was staggered by the volume and content of spam and porno she had received in a relatively short time. I only get 8 or 9 a week. No one has offered to extend my p***s - I like to think that it's because they cannot improve on perfection but the alternative is that the task is beyond anything that internet science can offer!

click here its great and free

I would agree with ?ÕL ?à??? that Mailwasher is very useful. The version of Mailwasher from click here only supports one mail account and won't handle Hotmail.
This site will give version 2.21 which will handle more than one account click here

If you click on the set up icon on this linkclick here you can D/L Mailwasher 2b29 which supports Hotmail and any number of mail accounts.
