    I think this is the second time I'm asking this.
    I just opened my mailbox to get a funny spam list, though (see the highlighted ones, top first):

    By the way, this is like my third time cleaning the mailbox today, not including the stuff that automatically gets sent to junk mail...

    Well, I have 3 e-mail accounts and only one of them draws the most crap. My Yahoo account is the one that gets me, on average, over 300 bulk/junk/spam, everyday. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    My Hotmail and Grapevine get absolutely nothing because I don't use them very often.

    My pestywesty@yahoo account has me emptying or deleting around 100 each time I'm on during the day and then checking back later a few hours and deleting more and again later at night to find even more to delete.

    I HATE SPAM!!! I can't even get none of them to stop because I've already maxed out my 100 limit blockage on Yahoo. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    yeah, i've had the same yahoo account for 5 or so years now... lots and lots of spam. Out of 100 messages, prolly 2 of them are actually wanted mail addressed to me. I prolly get 250 messages a day. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    My yahoo account gets spam by the ton. Thank goodness about 90% goes into bulk and I click delete and that is that. The other part I get maybe 15-30 emails a day in there, and all but a few are spam. It's very old trying to keep on it. Least with AOL it's hardly as bad. I get maybe 3-4 a day with them.....

    I get none, just never give your email address out. I always use a phony one whenever possible, or a legitimate one that i used to use, but don't anymore. Most of my "junk" mail is from the stupid crap my friends and family forward me that i really don't care about /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I get a couple on my earthlink and about 25 or 30 a day on my hotmail. Hotmail must think I have a small penis because they are constantly offering to make it larger. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Hold shift and press PrintScreen, that copies it to the clipboard, then paste it in something like notepad...save as a file, and you're all set.

    I get a few of those junk mails, too. It started out a buddy of mine sending that to me as a joke and ever since, I've been getting that one and many others. Gawd! I've been trying to find something to send back to him so he can deal with spam, too. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I get none but I also use a neat Free program called Mailwasher that checks it, then you decide if want to delete it or bounce it or open your normal mail program and download it. Bouncing it sends the spam back as undeliverable. They get a few of those and finally they give up. You can also preview the message and decide if its worth downloading onto your comp. Its awesome and easy to use.

    Thanks for posting that link. Ever since I found it I haven't been able to live without it. After a year of using mine (never registered it still using the one with ad's at the top) I have no spam at all.
