Your ISP should have a filter. Mine uses Barracuda and it works very well.pecker1210 said:Hi,
I get a load of crap mail advertising Viagra etc but I cannot get rid of it!! It is becoming really frustrating as I get 10 or more a day.
I have Norton 2007 installed as my security.
Some sites make you give a real e-mail address that they then use to e-mail you the link to the content that you want. The free Dodgeit service comes in handy in those cases when you are pretty sure you never want to get any other e-mails related to your visit to that site again.striker0204 said:Spam comes from a website asking you to "register" or "Join". Basically, do NOT Use your Email account for Registering or becoming a member on Sites. They Usually just end up spamming you S*******.
That is where the simple beauty of using Dodgeit.com comes in. There is no need to register or set up any e-mail accounts in advance with Dodgeit and their is no need to add any accounts to your e-mail client. Say you get a link to an on-line newspaper article and find out the newspaper site will only send the real link or password to your e-mail address. You can just type in something like "[email protected]" on the newspaper site's form while remembering or copying what you typed in ahead of the "@". Then go to www.dodgeit.com a couple of minutes later and type in or paste "thispapersux" on their form. You instantly get web access to any mail sent to [email protected]. Who cares if it gets spam bombed after that. You never need to check that e-mail address again. You just forget about it.striker0204 said:Even when you have to register for a site, and confirm the email, alot of the times you get spammed crapless, this usually happens cuz they get sponsored/paid to send spam.s
We get the premium Yahoo service as part of or DSL service at home. One of the premium services is called "Address Guard" that comes in handy for addresses you may want to keep and use for a while but still be able to cancel at any time. You first create a permanent unique alias for your account like AllSpammersMustDie-. You are then free to add and delete extensions to the name after the dash. All incoming e-mails get forwarded to the your real Yahoo address's in box. Any replies get sent using the full alias. I use it more to see which web sites are sharing my information with other companies.striker0204 said:Cuz i just use yahoo, free accounts i love em.
