    Anyone use a spam filter program? Do they work?


    Hi All,
    My spam seems to be increasing and I am considering using a spam filter program. There are a few on the market.
    Spamilator, Mailwasher etc
    Do they work? If so, any recommendations please?
    Thanks!

    I actually use gMail to process my spam.

    A free gmail account has the ability to check and collect emails from a number of other POP3 based email servers and then organise and present them for reading, Gmail works with POP3 or IMAP (recommended for anyone who wishes to check from more than one device, and has Broadband Internet access).

    Gmail's default spam filters are IMO at least as good as the specialist programs on sale and it also allows you simply add to the filters for your specific needs, (just click the mark as spam button, for anything that does not end up in the spam bin that you feel is spam).

    Spam is automatically deleted from the spam bin after thirty days but I tend to check every few days just in-case anything has been incorrectly classed as spam (extremely rare in my experience)

    You can also create rules to control anything that, although is not specifically spam, you wish to clear from your inbox but save to read later, (I use it to save away my regular informational emails that I have subscribed to
