I've tried quite a few email apps and am currently running Eudora on my wife's machine.  A long time ago on my machines, I decided Eudora just didn't cut it anymore.  Outlook express is out since I opt for non ms applications whenever possible and I think spammers target OE in particular.  I went with Mozilla and even use the mailer included.  The latest version is 1.7b and the mailer has filters that beat any I've tried.  Besides, I prefer the browser over IE.  I have five email addresses.  For serious stuff on one, I block everything except for addresses that are already IN my address book.  On the other addresses, I filter to suit the use.  My wife's machine with Eudora, OE and the same email addresses is constantly bugged with spam, but Mozilla's  mail app seldom gets a spam email.  It does take a some trouble setting up and getting used to Mozilla, but seems to be worth it.  Installation is really easy, just dump it into a directory and it will pick up all IE's bookmarks.  When a new beta version comes up just delete the directory and the new version will still get all the old settings.  And its for free.
(Your ISP probably has filters too.  One of my ISPs is pretty good at blocking spam before It gets to me and the other one is absolutely great at it.  I have run a web site for years and can't remember when I've received spam at the address I use there.)

I have thunderbird, but use Outlook and I use Firefox. I only had one email bomber and that got resolved. I think most of these pranksters get your email off your website pages and decide to have fun.  >:(

Thought i'd update my junk email battle.  The last few weeks I have only had ONE junk email!!!  At first some of them was getting past my rules.  I wound up deleating OutLook express, and then redownloading it and reset up the rules.  Then I moved outlook express out of my start menu and hid it on my desktop so it would only start when I wanted it too.  Since doing this I have only had ONE junk mail get through, that's right only ONE!!!!!  So, I blocked it and set up another rule with the keywords in the mail.  I'm a cheapstake, 'wonder where the origin of that word came from' .  I have no programs that block or filter email, just what I set up.  Actually looking forward to them coming up with new tricks so I can figure out how outsmart em!!!!!!!!!!! 8) 8) 8) 8)

  Just a heads-up, here. Past 3 days been getting a "Forum notify" E-mail, from Scottishblood. DO NOT open it. It's the Beagle virus.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

We just had a 3 day nightmare named "n-case" and tv.180solutions.

My daughter and a freind somehow downloaded n-case and it took right over.I don't believe it is a virus but is a spyware,and we had ads flashing all over the place.The computer would freeze up and sometimes shut down but it was also painfully slow.I tried to uninstall but that does not work.

Finally got rid of n-case around 11:00 last night :-/

a good way to slow/stop auto spams is to not auto link your address by makeing it cut and paste
stick an apology under it about to much spam most people wont mind  :)
