**FREE!*** SPAM Blocker Option with Microsoft Outlook Express Email
Microsoft Outlook Express Email allows you to block specific addresses sending to you AND block messages with specific words AND it's ***FREE!***.
Goto Outlook Express:
Message -> Create Rule from Message AND Block Sender
Tools Message Rules -> Mail AND Blocked Sender List
SPAM blockers can take out most SPAM Emails too. I use McFee. A suit costs about £40/year! And includes firewall.
I have updated the Ex-members section. Replacing the Email @ sign with *. To fool SPAM Robots. Most Email addresses are out of date now anyway. People seem to change Email address a lot: Hotmail, Freeserve (changing to wanadoo), new cheap 1p/minute providers, Dial-Up -> Broadband... (I have just moved to Tiscali for £12.99 per/month *BARGAIN!*.
I get a bit of SPAM. The new ones seem to be about:
Gambling Internet Sites (they hit my Guestbook too). Did you know Gambling has gone up from £7 Billion to £40 Billion in five years!!!!!! Mainly because of internet Broadband gambling.
Asking you to buy Stocks and Shares.
And fonny ones claiming to be from a Bank (not necessarily your own) eBay and PayPal, asking for account details which they never do, they even manage to have their URL appear to point to the company concerned.
I find posting to newsgroups generates the most SPAM.
