    Email Spam Stoping technique...

    U all probably do this but this is in reltaion to the virus thread...
    When I 1st got my email account with hotmail, i was flooded with spam, so I just ending not deleting, but Blocking all spam emails. I did this with everything, or anyone I didnt know.

    3 years on, and at least 6 months, I cant remember the last email address I blocked. I never get spam, junk mail or anything!

    I guess it must have worked...

    still u prolly all do this anyway...
    Signatures are stupid

    It's a nice proxy pop server that filters spam by flagging it (so that your e-mail program can do whatever with it.)

    It's processes 1100 spam mails for me, and 900 good mails, lol. The great thing is, when it gets it wrong, you correct it, so it learns.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
