Spam
  • Be sure to learn how to filter/block spam on the desktop using your email program. More info.

PreVIEW your messages and process them before download

If you are finding it hard to get removed from mailing lists or are tired of getting junk email from unknown sources? You can make spammers think you no longer exist by bouncing back their email so it looks like your address has been closed. MailWasher  (we use this)

SpamBuster compares the email message, header information, sender, and size to the spam settings you've defined to see if the message is spam. Then Spam Buster even checks the sender against a blacklist of known spammers. Spam Buster requires a POP3 email account such as provided from a local internet service provider and does not support proprietary email such as AOL

SpamKiller can filter any number of e-mail accounts for you. It's designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, so most of the time you won't even remember that it's there. The program comes with a large number of preset filters. These aren't just a list of e-mail addresses, but are based on careful analysis of tens of thousands of spams.

MailShell offers a free 30-day trial. $29.95 per year. Use unlimited email addresses.
