Amazing.. news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

I can't beleive I just deleted 107 virus infected emails from my inbox! It's almost disgusting how frequently this crud gets sent. It even maxed a 10MB inbox! With that said, I managed to spot an email from [email protected] dealing with this very fact. Dan covers a nifty little spam-fighter called MailWasher. Head on over to check it out!


On a bad day, out of every ten e-mails I receive, there'll be three genuine messages, one virus-mail, spam-bounce or virus-bounce (because someone sent spam or a virus-mail to a nonexistent address with me listed as the sender), and six spams of one kind or another.


Which I simply adore, of course. Doesn't everyone? It's so educational!


Solicitations from heavy equipment companies in non-English-speaking countries, fantastic business opportunities, 419 scams, petitions, incomprehensible political spam pointing to Web sites I can't even read and, of course, the usual mail about penis and breast enlargement, prescription drugs, porn, pyramid scams and penny stock pump-and-dump operations. Et cetera.


Assuming you're not some kind of pervert, you agree with me that spam's bad, m'kay. So what do you do about it?
