Thought you might be interested in a very cool and easy to use anti- spam, anti-virus program called BrightMail. I USED to get lots of spam but not anymore. BrightMail acts as a filter between your computer and your e-mail server. I like it because it doesn't look for spam by looking for keywords. Real people at Brightmail collect spam, then categorize it and add it to a database. Email sent to you
