How do you folks get rid of spam? Is there a good program to use. We are getting more and more each day.

Thanks in advance for feedback.

Take a gmail address
Forward the mail from your old address to your gmail address (if possible).
You will still get spam, but separated from the normal mails.

Yeah, mine is handled by my ISP. Anytime I get spam from anyone, I can mark it "spam," and somehow the filters make certain I never receive mail from that address, or anything closely titled the same. It doesn't delete it, but places in a spam folder so I can view before final deletion, if I prefer.

always be VERY careful 'where you go' on the net and don't leave a trail (your addy) IF possible!

quit looking at "those" websites Ches!

I have a couple of yahoo addresses that get used when I sign up for things, and a personal address that is only given out to friends family etc.

My work address is used for (go figure) work items only (Yeah, I am the only person on earth that doesn't give out my work addy casually)

With this system, I stay pretty spam free, and what comes in comes to the Yahoo addies and is filtere by yahoo. Thier filter seems pretty good.

This is ONE of the strategies I use. My email provider is different from my ISP. I do NOT use Microsoft Outlook. I also sweep my computer periodically with "Spybot Search and Destroy" to keep spammers from placing cookies. I also periodically delete cache and cookies.

Chester,

This is the home version of what I have used for years on my corporate networks that I manage. Always been rated as one of the top.

Internet Security

It includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, and Spam filters. You can install on three home computers for the price.
We use this home version on wifes and children's puters and it works just as good as the corporate version.

The very first thing I would do is check with my email provider, usually your isp. Do they have a spam blocker, if so is it turned on. I use earthlink for my main email address and have to turn on and set the level of spam blocking I want. It goes all the way to denying anybody that I haven't given them permission to send on to no spam filtering at all.

I would try to not open Outlook Express, or your email program, instead go to your email on your ISP's site, and make sure the spam settings are activated, then start flagging spam there, before its downloaded to your computer. That might help!

Chester,
When we were on dial-up we used to get tons of spam every day. Then, we made the decision to switch to a much faster system - our local cable company. It did cost more per month but besides being much faster, the spam was stopped cold. Our cable server eliminates probably 99 percent of incoming spam, the remainder consigned to a seperate location which can then be deleted by the user. As with any server, one should have an updated anti-virus program such as Norton.
Don
