Good advice, Patty. Below is something that I just got from Data
Doctors, an online newsletter that is the source of the worm and virus
warnings I post to the list. When you click on the link, it takes you
to a page of their recommended spam filters and blockers. MailWasher
has their stamp of approval. I've been using it for a couple or three
years; it's quite easy to use and some interesting features. I think
Judy Decker uses it as well.
Dee wrote us an e-mail asking if there is one program to get rid of spam
entirely. At this time, there is not a single “all-in-one” anti-spam
program. As always, the best way to rid yourself of spam is to get a
new e-mail address. However, there are a few programs out there that
perform very nicely when it comes to taking care of the spam epidemic.
For a list of these programs, visit the Approved Software section of the
Data Doctors website, or click here.
