mine's ok now but I have viruses and malicious codes coming through singnet last year
28th April 2004, 11:54 PM
no solutions... I get like hotmail stuff asking me to open the attachments....which I know it;s a trojan..... quite annoying having to delete all these emails.... all the time

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.

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.

Mine laso has lots and lots and lots of junk mail. The worse thingy is that I subscribe to email notification...which translates to lots of SMS notification about those junk mails! Really angry with pacnet

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...

heh, I have yahoo mail, hotmail, excite mail, plus think at least 3 others...
