Just want to find out. How much junk e-mail do u ppl receive everyday in your e-mail account(s)? Spammers hit practically every account I got. My office e-mail receives at least 5 or 6 spam mails every day, despite the presence of firewalls, spam filters and what not. My ISP account (I'm on Singnet BB) is also flooded with at least 20 over such emails per day, so I have to resort to using web-based email, which still attracts junk/spam mail but slightly better. At least u dun have to wait while ur e-mail client downloads tons of useless spam mail.

Just wondering also, which anti-spam/spam filter software out there is the most effective? Anyone knows? :dunno:

I used to receive 60+ junkmail a day in my Hotmail account, but now, it's down to only 5-10 a day. Quite strange, I don't understand why myself. I've never gotten any junkmail in my 'official' uni account eventhough I use this account for registration purposes on more important websites etc..

Any idea where to download this program from and is it shareware or freeware? Thanks...
You can get a lots of freeware from http://www.snapfiles.com/freeware/comm/fwspam.html

K9 is one of the good one. Actually what i do is to setup mail rules in my email program as follow:

-All mails contain my friends email address will be put into a friends folder
-Other mails will be put into kiv folder

That will allow me to attend to my friends email first and go throught the kiv folder when i am free

About 80-100 mails daily, but i still refude to use any spam protector. Afraid it might delete any good mail.

Don't worry, you can specify whether to auto delete. Anyway, I am using Mailwasher Pro, it can almost 90% captured and identified most of the junk mails. :)

i used to use myrealbox.com but its kinda unstable an often goes down. so i changed to bluebottle.com no junk mails at all. also can setup smtp/pop3 for outlook.

I used to get 90% junk mails daily which is 100+. Complain to Starhub but nothing happened. Tried all kind of spam filter programs but could not find one that really stops the junk from coming in. Finally changed email id and now it is peace and quiet....only real email........mmmmmmmm.

My ISP filters most spam out of the system so don't have any idea how much is really being directed my way. Even so 20-30 a day get through. Pre filtering days I used to get upwards of 200+

Use 2 email addresses lah.
One for registering at web based services etc, etc..
Another for private emails from friends.

I hardly get any junk on my friend-based email account but lots of junk email on the web based services one.

since i have bought space on the net, i use my domain to set up multiple email addresses.. so when i register at any site, i use an email called register@........
if spam comes in, i will know who sold the email to spammers.. and if i do get spam, i delete the email account.

thats the most effective way to deal with spam....
