Re: Spam

I'm touching wood as I type this but I can't remember the last time I had any spam. Is it the PN spam filter that is keeping me safe?

Re: Spam

Is it plusnet's mail service you use ?
If so I do not think it has the same facilities to block spam as compared to Gmail.

Re: Spam

I can't even remember my plusnet email details, gave up with ISP based email addresses when I lost my old ntlworld address (granted I ditched NTL many years ago and it took them 7 years to close the email account!!), but still, only getting about 6 or 7 chopped pork & ham messages a week on my yahoo address, and my gmail I never give out for anything other than google-related stuff so has zero canned meat by-products...

Re: Spam

A few years ago I stood in front of a UK Parliamentary committee and said the best way to combat SPAM email is to levy a 1p per message tax on email. If the email doesn't have a valid tax paid certificate the server should drop the email. The tax could used to fund the UN or something useful.
The speaker following me argued against the concept. He was the founder of Spamhaus an anti-spam business.

whats the betting he was also a founder of a spam mailer company as well...... most of the anti spam paid services are owned by spam mailing companies .....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
