    How about mailwasher?
    Look in the "privacy" forums and those services people discussed, there are several. MW is not all free anymore, but is a very nice tool!

    'think MAY have found cure

    hello all, THANK U for the suggestions,I called DSL (3 times) and FINALLY got a Tech that knew how to fix this,(1st two told me only way was to dis connect service "about a week to 10 days" then re establish your dsl service-NO WAYYYYYYY)

    SITUATION: you have dsl service, but you UPGRADE to SBC/YAHOO delux package,for faster speed, but when you did the installation u "'accidentially" MERGED your yahoo account with your SBC account,,( with me it was yahoo with my outlook express/ISP mail account) and you sated getting all kinds of SPAM that is normally sent to your isp mail account,*********
    (also PLZ note I NEVER use outlook express or my isp mail because of this )

    CURE: the dsl teck walked me thru this, heres how to stop a LOT of the isp spam,,

    go to your YAHOO EMAIL,(INBOX account & open it
    look to the top right,,click on MAIL OPTIONS, a window opens,

    GO TO FILTERS,,CLICK ON THAT,
    a window opens

    u WILL SEE

    ADD EDIT DELETE

    CLICK ON ADD----click on add----- A WINDOW OPENS

    in this window you will see, (believe 2nd line)

    TO/CC HEADER Contins then a blank space,

    In the blank space type in
    (this was for me-USE YOUR OWN NAME & ISP)

    myname@swbell.net then put a ck in the box

    and at the bottom click on ADD FILTER,

    then close your email & sign out,
    then sign in again

    on the inbox after signing back in click on
    MAIL OPTIONS, THEN FILTERS,

    and you should see any mail comming from
    ( me= OUTLOOK EXPRESS/ MY ISP ) IS BLOCKED FROM BEING FORWARDED to my YAHOO EMAIL,but ONLY "'if"' YOU USE YOUR HOTMAIL EMAIL ACCOUNT EXCLUSIV.

    while this may not stop all the spam I have been getting ,IT SURE CUT 90-95% of it, "FRIEND"


    ****** OUTLOOK EXPRESS is something that I take COMPLETELY off of-out of my computer system, because of the isp mail & spam.

    Hmm well I would like to add here that I have Roadrunner cable and I use nothing but Outlook Express for email (I also have the old free version of Mailwasher of course) and I never got any spam until someone sent me a couple "on-line gretting cards" which is when I added Mailwasher which has pretty much cleaned me down to 1-2 spam mails a week.
