Default OT - Spam fritters?

I know that its hopelessly OT, but I am so delighted with this anti-spam
program that I have to tell someone. I have recently been absolutely
bombarded with spam (and, no, not to the address I use for this newsgroup),
and no amount of filtering seems to have stopped it.

Following up a report in yesterday's Sunday Times, I downloaded Spamtap from
www.spamtrap.org. A few minutes setting it up, and I have not received a
single spam e-mail since. The software has, however, picked up well over
100 spam-mails, which have been filtered into my delete folder!

I prefer MailWasher

Another one is SpamPal

http://www.spampal.org/

For anti-spam

http://www.grisoft.com/

And personal firewall

http://soho.sygate.com/

This is all free stuff, and no relation, just passing it forward....

Spampal and mailwasher running together works for me - spampal detects the
message as spam using one of its several databases which then inserts
**spam** in the subject line, by creating an additional filter in
mailwasher to detect this spam messages are then not even downloaded.

I have noticed in the last two weeks that the level of spam I have received
has dropped about 75% anyway.

But Mailwasher wll do this on its own so why have two programs doing the
same job? Or have I missed something?

Out of interest, one of the databases had one of Tiscali's (the major UK
ISP) mail servers in its list last week, endless fun that was...

That is when mailwasher comes into effect - it allows you to check if there
are any valid messages before deleting them without having to download them
first.
