    maybe you should move your email to a service that has spam blockers, like Gmail. I have invites left if you're interested.

    sorry i mis read ye thread,

    free,What Is SpamPal?

    SpamPal is a mail classification program that can help separate your spam from the mail you really want to read.

    How does SpamPal work?

    SpamPal sits between your email program and your mailbox, checking your email as you retrieve it. Any email messages that SpamPal considers to be spam will be "tagged" with a special header; you simply configure your email client to filter anything with this header into a separate folder and your spam won't be mixed up with the rest of your email anymore!

    But how does SpamPal know what is spam and what isn't? Well, it uses what are called DNSBL lists. Patterned after the famous MAPS RBL, these are lists of parts of the Internet that in one way or another facilitate spam. Any email you get from a machine on one of these lists has an increased probability of being spam. Some ISPs already block all email from machines on some of these DNSBL lists, but many do not. This is where SpamPal comes in.

    You can choose to use any or all of the freely-usable DNSBL lists; SpamPal will look at the machines each email message passed through on its way to your mailbox, and if any of those machines is on one of the DNSBL lists you have chosen then that message will be tagged as spam.

    Because not everyone who uses a machine on a DNSBL list will be a spammer, SpamPal has a powerful whitelisting feature that allows you to ignore DNSBL listings for certain senders or for parts of the Internet.

    How much does this cost?

    SpamPal is free software; you can download and install it entirely free-of-charge. This isn't a trial, or a crippled cut-down version to tempt you towards an expensive "full" version, or a package loaded with spyware to steal your personal details - the fully-featured version of SpamPal can be downloaded and used without imposition or restriction!

    SPASM.......... SPASM works as a buffer between your mail server and your email reader (MS Outlook). It provides increased protection when reading attachments and allows you to manage your email accounts in a proper way. Current email viruses share a common property. They are all binary files or scripts. SPASM scramble all binary attachments and the scripts before making them available to your email reader. If the attachment is a picture, a piece of music or a video clip you can still see a portion of it. However, executable or zipped files cannot run. Once you have safely open the scrambled attachment and made your decision you can read the entire file. In addition, you can check your POP3 mail before downloading to your computer and determine if the messages are safe to retrieve. You can block, delete or even look at the messages before delivering them to your email reader. For every email message downloaded SPASM creates a file that can be accessed using Outlook Express, Notepad, WordPad or other email programs. SPASM is a small portable program. You can take it on the road, run it from a floppy disk and access your mail without leaving any trace or change settings on someone else's computer. Version 1.0 works with POP3 mail accounts only. It does not support Web accounts (Hotmail, AOL, etc).....(free).....GO THERE!
