    Jason,

    I get hundreds per day and there's really no way to stop it with a filter (any filter) because the names, addresses, titles and content continue to change.

    What I do is set rules in Outlook to capture certain words and email addresses and then told Outlook to check email every 60 seconds. It doesn't catch all of them, but it does catch the majority of them. And being set at 60 seconds allows you to delete 1 or 2 at a time rather than 300-400 at a time.

    Jason! You said you are making money hand over fist and you can't afford MailWasher??? LOL. It seems you need to prioritize and if spam is that big an issue, you need to invest in something to help you manage it, mailwasher or otherwise.

    Jason,

    The first thing you ought to do is activate the filters available in your cpanel at your website(s).

    Next, you should write a few filter rules for your email application (program) whichever one you use. Some are pretty crappy. I use Calypso, which is not really available any more, but is very specialized. I am able to kill 98% of the spam that tries to make it through the door.

    Have you disabled HTML view in your email client? If not, you should, it's another way to get viruses and other crap. I have found that only about 5% of personal email is written so you can only see it in HTML. Some merchants are really the only ones that seem to write their email this way.

    Anyway, don't let it get you down. All of the suggestions I have given you won't cost you a dime to use.

    I use Spam Inspector, which is very accurate at picking out the spam and putting it into a spam quaranteen folder.

    They have a 15 day trial, so you could get spam filtering for 15 days for free.

    Having said that, I reckon it's the best $19 I've ever spent.

    Don't ever click on some newbees very first post's link. Mouse over shows tinyurl.com/2Ab6f ( whatever that implies) I'm not brave enough to even try.
    If I want to push a great trio of spam filtering- popup blocker -parasite/spyware removal tools I'd rather investigate a worthy company. I have one which has a lucrative affiliate program that is an indy that doesn't block any legit network links by default and a 5 star ratings from the PC testing companies. I just don't want the ABW SE spammers whacking the SERPs with this one.

    OK - I realise it can always be dangerous to click on a link

    Anyway - for those who are interested - it is SpamArrest. And YES, tinyurl is my affiliate link shortened.

    Sorry if you felt misguided.

    Info For Mike: TinyURL is a redirect service - a legitimate one - that simply shortens long URLs. It's quite useful for replacing very long URLs in emails and some of the offline internet magazines over here in the UK use it for links within articles, so that it's easier to type the link into your address bar.

    As for spam, I use McAfee's SpamKiller which works well combined with about 130 (at last count) Outlook filters.

    I'm aware of that MarkyMark. I've been fooled to click those short encripted links before. Sometimes the results can be interesting like playing website peek-a-boo. Ended up at one I thought was a bridal themed shop. Agree URL was too long...HowtoPrepareyourGoatforMarriage.com. Interesting site if your confined to a cave with lot's of info on sexual training. Tips from using honey and milk to a $9.95 special on how to bill your insurance company for gynocoligal exams under co-habitation loopholes. Freebee was a list of doctors and a liberal activist group. Got all that in one spam!
