Man,   I get soooooo much spam anymore.   None of my colleagues get much at
all.  A lot of it is porno spam, which is really annoying and embarrassing
to get at work.   I think spam is the price of being on mailing lists like
this one, every once in a while a clever spammer figures out how to mine the
list.

Now: How to block spam?  I have a nice email inbox rule that says if the
sender is piclist, then move the mail to my piclist folder.  Fine.

I have blocked a few senders, who change email addresses every day, so that
does no good.

I also have a dozen inbox rules that say +ACI-If the incoming message body
contains the words incest,  Rape, +ACYAXgAmACU-, +ACUAJQAkACMAQAAj-, +AH4AQAAjACQAJAAk-, +AEAAJAAjACU- OR +ACMAJQAjACQAQA-, then
delete the message.  But these rules never work.  I can send myself a test
message containing any or all those nasty words, and it is not deleted.  I
get pornograms every day containing all those words.  Has enyone been
successful using MS Lookout Depressed inbox rules to block porno spam?

I am developing a pretty extensive filter list for Outlook at work.  My
Procmail filter at home blocks about 95% of incoming SPAM without catching
more than about 5% of non-SPAM email, but it's taken two years of tweaking
to get it this good.

I am convinced that many ISPs sell their email address lists to spammers.
It's the only way I can think of that a couple of my accounts could be
hit, and a new one will get blasted within a month or two of creating it
even if it's never used for sending anything.

I hate SPAMmers.  One of my hobbies is chasing them down.  Unfortunately,
it seems there is a never-ending supply of hackable machines in Asia and
Eastern Europe, where mail admins either don't care, don't speak English,
or are simply not reachable.  Half of the IP addresses don't resolve to
host names and have no usable contact information.  Most days it's a
losing battle.

If you use outlook, have a look at this page:
http://www.garyjb.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/spam/download.htm

Also, I have found SpamMotel is useful. http://www.spammotel.com -- both free
services.

I still get a lot of junk. If you are listed in the InterNic database,
that is a source of quite a bit of it. Any posts to Usenet? Any Web
pages with your address on them? These all attract spam like flies.

www.spambouncer.org has a bunch of rules that sort email into
accepted, blocked, and spam folders. There are also .nobounce and
legitlists files where you can put addresses you don't want blocked. On
blocked messages, it sends a reply with a password erroneously blocked
mail can use to get through. Reply addresses on spam always (in my
experience) bounce. Messages definitely classified as spam (and I haven't
seen any falsely classified as spam) generate imitaion mailer daemon
messages indicating no such user or similar. They also generate
complaints to upstream providers automatically. SpamBouncer has a scoring
system that it uses to classify the mail. Including the "this is not
spam" disclaimer is a strong indicator that it IS spam.

I have a couple folders on my Netscape email called _Spam and _Blocked .
It's fun to look in there now and then and see this huge list of message
subjects on a variety of get rich quick, porn, make a million on the
internet, etc. messages.

Here is a free web filter http://proxomitron.org/ to get rid of all those
pop-up boxes, banners, etc from your web browser.  I have been using it for
a month and it works great!

I just installed SpamEaterPro http://spameater.co.uk/?lu=faq for a 30 trial.
It's working well so far.  I typically got between 20 and  75 spams a day
including some in foreign languages I couldn't even read.  I hope this
solves the problem.
