6. Email > 59. Slam That Spam

Slam That Spam

You don’t have to be bedeviled by unwanted mail. Use this hack to kill as much as 90% (or much more, in my case) of your spam.

People who have certain body parts they’d like enlarged, who expect Nigerian strangers to shower several million dollars upon them, who favor spending boatloads of money for semiworthless goods, and who enjoy vile, pornographic come-ons littering their email box love spam.

Everyone else, like you and I, hate the stuff.

While there’s no foolproof way of stopping all the spam that makes its way into your mailbox, I’ve found ways to block at least 90% of what I don’t want headed my way. To get such an effective blocking rate, you’ll need to use downloadable software; the antispam features built into Outlook and Outlook Express simply don’t cut it. (However, if you’re bent on trying to use Outlook and Outlook Express’s antispam features, head to the end of this hack to learn how.)
