In Response To: Spam and fake identities (Claire)

Hi Claire,

I don't know of a solution to stop spammers. Anyone with an email client can use a fake email address. And there are lots of software programs openly available for spammers to buy and use.

To help reduce the spam I receive, I use SpamAssassin on my server, as well as individual filters that block some URLs being sent in the BODY of the messages.

These tools have really had an impact on the amount of spam I receive.

Best Regards,
Steve MacLellan
