I receive like 200 spam emails a day. Most of the times, I am selling Viagra to myself or trying to find myself a date (The From and To are all addressed to me). Soon as I create a rule to send it to junk email, there comes another with a different subject line. I am tired and want a permanent solution to this. It seems like some people are practising a lot on how to send spam emails. Any suggestions on what could be a solution to this menace. Thanks, wise_donkey

Get a new E-mail address. Don't give it to anyone except close friends and family and even then be stingy with it. Use your current E-mail address for any online stuff. I've heard that the Google Toolbar is supposed to be good at blocking Spam but I have no personal knowledge of it as I don't want or use any Toolbars with my browsers.

This one seems to be quite popular

Don't use it myself, but know someone who does and he's happy. He has the pro version mind you. The free dosen't have all the features.

Helo wise_donkey, Who is your ISP? Mine serves me well here in Australia, it has spam filters that come with the plan I have purchased. Zruker is correct, Googletoolbar is excellent for stopping spam, it has a very good popup blocker so I suggest you download and install it to see if it help you. I couldn't do without it. Keep us posted, kind regards,
