:thumbsup: This is driving me crazy. Everyday i get spam e-mail from the same two places.
One is judahsanctuary, the other is from some place giving stock tips which always come under different names. I've tried blocking thru outlook express, but that just sends them to my deleted box, where i have to highlight them, and delete them anyway. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of these pains in the neck? sportster. :flowers:

Use a spam filter:

http://www.bluesecurity.com/ (Free and apparently extremely efficient)
This link also provides several excellent spam filters, however they aren't all free:

Good luck smacking that spam!

No problem! Unfortunately, it appears that BlueFrog Anti-Spam is temporarily under maintenance :thumbsup: so it looks like you might have to wait a little. But I'm sure you could use a trial version of one of the product anti-spam filters. By the time your trial runs out Bluefrog should have finished maintenance.

What's odd is while we're here talking about spam blockers, I get a
spam e-mail from, Godwin Yarbrough, subject is, bimbo panther.
Two to one it's another one trying to get people to buy some goofy
stocks, The name and subject never reflect what's on the inside.
