I'd like to introduce you to a great product called Spamfighter that helps with this problem, but first! A little about spammers and spam!
Spam is unwanted e-mail that you find in your inbox, if you signed up for an e-mail list either online or in a store that doesn't count as spam.
There are two main types of spammers:
1. Those who want you to buy something - usually prescription medications that they've 'acquired' or doesn't require a prescription to get the medication in their country. Common sense warning: Never buy a medication online from someone you don't know!
In order to use a product I firmly believe you have to understand everything you need to know about it, with that in mind here is what you need to know about a great program called Spamfighter and how to install it.
2. The great thing about Spamfighter is that it's constantly learning; if an unwanted e-mail manages to show up in your inbox you can report it, and it will be filtered automatically by Spamfighter for anyone else that received that same message in their inbox anywhere around the world. Yet another victory in the fight against Spam in your inbox!
3. It's free for the Standard version but if you'd like you can upgrade to the Pro version for $29 a year. Click here for the detailed features list. Please note that when you first download the program they give you a free 30-day trial of the Pro version.
