    I use a web account to access most of my mail.

    But some of my friends are having severe problems with SPAM MAIL.

    One of them even purchased Norton Internet Security 2005 package, which includes:
    Firewall (I like ZoneAlarm better)
    AntiVirus (I use AVG... better)
    Privacy control ?
    Spam Filter - which hooks into the email client (Eudora, Outlook)

    The Spam Filter doesn't seem to be doing a good job... anything that works better? Or is there a setting in Norton that may help?

    These idiotic spammers are making email bloody useless!


    PS: Also, Perfered "child" filtering program... I've heard of such names as cyber nanny and cybersitter... It would need to block sites, but also log attempts to sites.

    For filtering, I know of a freeware application called iProtectYou .

    The spam filtering can probably be adjusted in the spam filter application. For me, I like the filter found in Pegasus e-mail client. It is much safer than Outlook, a lot more flexible, and is freeware. Also, it is a bit more complicated to use than OE.

    I've had friends tell me that K9 is a good spam filter.
