Part II: Mozilla Thunderbird > Protecting Your Privacy and Blocking Spam

Chapter 11. Protecting Your Privacy and Blocking Spam

DO OR DIE:

  • Confront spam head on [you won’t need a helmet]

  • Block loading of remote images in many messages

  • Can I get a SPAM and cheese to go?

Ahh, spam. It’s everywhere. Check out this 2004 quote from Bill Gates at the World Economic Forum: “Two years from now, spam will be solved.” Well, he certainly took a rather optimistic view of how many inroads we would be able to make in the fight against spam. Instead of winning the war on spam, in many ways, we are continuing to fight a seemingly never-ending battle. Spam continues to flow into inboxes all over the world at an alarming rate. Companies scramble to implement server-side spam filters while consumers troll the web trying to find solutions to keeping spam out of their inbox and to keep themselves free of viruses, Trojan horses, and worms. Spam isn’t only an annoyance—it carries a host of other threats that can be damaging to both you and your livelihood. It’s also a very popular luncheon meat.
