another great thing for "earthlink users" is the Spaminator.<br><br>I didn't know about the spaminator for almost a year, but if you're an earthlink member, (or mindspring, or one of the other ISP's they've bought over the years, I'm sure) goto:<br><br>http://spaminator.earthlink.net/ and sign up for the Spaminator... it'll grab the spam at earthlink's end... and let the rest of your email through... it's damn near perfect... and better than Entourage's spam filter by far....<br><br>Used to be at that other Mac website... like it here now.

Another great way to "help" fight spam is to tell your friends who forward yahoo! jokes to you (I am sure we all know a few of those!)<br>that instead of just forwarding that email to you, they can send it to themselves and in the "BCC" (Blind Carbon Copy, dugh) they can put as many people as they like so when you/we receive that email, we only see the address of the sender. And that goes for us too! never send out emails with private email addresses to people. You never know who is a spammer. and who and where that email will eventually end up. So...There is my tip. <br><br>
Loc: the ancient forests of MiddleE...
apart from the bleeding obvious which is never ever give anyone your email... you can turn off auto download of HTML graphics... you can set the size of mail to be automatically retrieved at say 40k or less, thus leaving all attachments on server and able to be deleted without bringing them in.<br>you can filter known annoying spammers who have found you to the trash and set scripts to empty trash after each mail collection.<br>you can use an email account which allows you to leav all mail you don't want there and be deleted from there.. I find hotmail useful for this as if you want to send me mal via hotmail, don't ever expect me to read it...but mac.com is by far the best method of co-ordinating and deleting all spam, without needing to read it and without letting them know your real mail.<br><br>its all a dream, light passing by on a screen, speeding through the universe, thinking is the best way to travel. ~ Pinder ~
