The Spam Program you like...

  1. I own both McAfee SpamKiller and MailWasher Pro, but I can't use McAfee SpamKiller because it takes FOREVER to filter some emails I get with websites attached (I need these emails for my business). So I only use Mail Washer.. If you have any comments on SpamKiller, I'd like to hear..

    I use K9 when things are normal. When things get nasty, I use Mailwasher Pro.

    been using mailwasher 'till it went PRO.
    now I use a simple notifier PopPeeper (pop/hotmail/yahoo) to read/select my mail.
    my provider checks my popmail for spam (free of charge), at first I had my doubts about it but I'm using it now.

    when things got nasty I used Spamkiller 'coz of its rule-updates. I don't have to change many of them because 99% of spammail is in english and my language is Dutch :D Spamkiller is definitely my favorit!!!

    greetingz from Flanders, thinghy ;)

    I voted other, because I delete all my mail that comes in on Hotmail with one easy push on a button.
    What comes through on the addy's I really use is mostly flagged as spam by my e-mail client.
    It is not that much that I need a special spam-filter and am keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way.

    But to add a program to the ones mentioned, I trialled MailBox Guard and thought that worked pretty good.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I just use the old mailwasher 1.32....

    I think it's real easy to use b/c hitting the "blacklist" button for anything I know is spam that mailwasher didnt catch adds it to the list... I haven't messed with the rules/filters - whatever you call them but the faked "nobody home" response really seems to work.. I get very little spam except at times when someone else lets my addy out somewhere.

    My ISP, Verizon, has been great about filtering spam. iHateSpam has been working good with the other providers. :)

    Hi!

    I've been using Pop Peeper e-mail checker for 5 months and it worked ok with MSN and Outlook Express. It's simple to use, it's free, and has updates too. It doesn't prevent spam mails though, you have to delete them from Pop Peeper before opening your mail box. Uguel

    I use K-9, more out of curiousity than anything else since I hardly get any spam (in spite of subscribing to numerous listservs) and I am not complaining :D

    Using Mailwasher here along with Advent Browser.

    One thing I have noticed lately is the spam servers are now using

    Yahoo, Lycos, excite ect for mail extentions, which the normal
    hotmail ect won't filter unless you chose each one. You don't dare
    use the option to delete all mail ending with those extentions.
    In their subject ine they are using : hardware problem?
    You forgot to reply, DO you remember me? just more things to try to trick you into opening the mail.

    Hi,

    I use Mailfrontier Matador. It work great for me and is directly integrated in Outlook and Outlook Express.

    I also use MailWasher pro to delete spaml from the server (I remove mail from the server after 7 days)

    Er. Bouncing spam mails is known to be a dumb thing to do. Because

    1) replyto headers are faked, often to innocent emails
    2) Even if they were not do you think spammers care whether a bounce comes and do you think they faithfully remove it?
    3) If they *do* care they certainty can tell the different between a fake bounce generated from the client and that coming from the mail server.
