    I have a friend that used to be able to email this one person, but now it gets bounced back as SPAM. I'll ask if he just installed that spam software or if he has always had it. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    This is the message he gets

    Do a search on Google for Spamaway. You'll come up with some interesting results!

    According to below paragraph Spamaway is just supposed to direct possible spam to some kind of bulk mail folder not do a direct block/bounce of possible spam:

    Suspected spam is automatically filtered from your Inbox and moved to your Bulk Mail Folder. From there, you can review and determine whether you want to keep or delete the message.

    The above was from this web page:

    http://www.cablevision.com/index.jhtml?pageType=qa_ool&qaType=spam#spam08


    I do not know all of the ISP's that are using Spamaway, but as your friend has experienced getting on the Spamaway list can be bad if you are an innocent.
