    Default ??How do I deal with SPAM??

    Hello
    No Urgency - But how do I deal with SPAM in 'Outlook Express 6'? I am now receiving about 20 emails a day that range from begging emails and money laundering requests to false alerts about my ebay and paypal account and viagra adverts? I have tried the suggestions used in various tutorials however many are still getting through. Does anyone have a quick-fix so I can live a SPAM-free life. More of a nuisance than anything else. As ever any help and guidance would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for reading this.

    Hi Jim, Some providers*offer Spam protection as part of their service.* These work fairly well, however I don't believe your provider does.* They do however offer this advice http://www.ntlworld.com/helpsupport/security/spam.php*which is very good.* Your other options could be change to a provider that includes this protection, change your e-mail address and use hotmail or google e-mail services which do offer spam protection and have a seperate e-mail account to give out to sites etc and keep one account*for friends and family.
