    yup, i think the junk mail comes from spyware which companies use to monitor u while u surf, as well as get down ur email address. Think you can't reduce the mails that are already coming in, except maybe to use a filtering program to facilitate deleting them...such as mailwasher which works pretty well.

    Can try to prevent even more mails coming in by using programs such as lavasoft's ad-aware to try and remove spywares from your comp. Hope this helps.

    My Singnet account is 10 years old and it receives a few hundred spams a day. I subscribed to the spamcop.net filtering service and that brought it down to under 10.

    one concern i have is whether your legitimate mails are inadvertendly filtered out as well?

    Well, it will be if the sender's mail server is blacklisted. spamcop doesn't do keyword filtering like the other spam filtering products, so though it may still happen, it should not be a lot.

    Yes! Up to the point where I basically abandoned the e-mail account about a year ago. Basically its like fighting a losing battle with spam. Now use web-based e-mail accounts...still have some spam lar but its better than the singnet one which is flooded with a few hundred a day. Got sick and tired of deleting them.

    heh...how abt getting yahoo mail?...they have a pretty good spam mail detection where it'll divert those that it think is spam into a seperate "folder"...the amt of storage space in the bulk folder is not counted for the overall mail space...its not deleted immediately so can still chk if any legitimate mail slipped thru...not bad i think...
