For those of you that have visited adult-oriented sites or installed shareware, I strongly suggest to check you computer for spyware. Those pesky programs track your on-line activities and report them back to the sender. They usually attract more spam. You can download Ad-aware, my favorite, here for free (personal edition):

Add that to the list of good things that come from Sweden.

And to have your e-mail on your homepage is another good way to get spammed, so ive heard.

Keld with 50-100 spams per day.

One very effective filter is the one my universities is using. I don'T know what it is but I didn'T receive a single spam and I use this adresse everywhere.

Hi grimberg,
I downloaded and installed the Ad-aware program you suggested.
It found 6 data-mining files mostly from gator after scanning my computer.
I am a bit shocked. Now I have a virusscanner, firewall, Ad-aware.
What else do I need??

Anyway grimberg and all others thanks for the help!

Having your e-mail on your home page is a sure way to get spammed. Many people write something like nospammyname@mydomain.com and count on people figuring out that the expression "nospam" has to be removedefore sending a message. The programmers who write the bots that mine for e-mail addresses from home pages are smart and know what to remove. A more effective way would be to express your e-mail as:
Contact me using myname in domain mydomain with extension com.
This is just an example. If you look around you will find other creative ways of doing it.

I don't know how it is done at your university, but in general, spam is avoided by analyzing patterns.

1) Certain sequences of words in the subject.
2) Certain sequences of words in the message body.
3) Large number of e-mails with exactly the same subject line.
4) Reply to address invalid or masked.
5) Large number of messages coming from certain IP addresses.

These are just for illustration purposes. There are more sophisticated ways to try and detect spam. The programmers hired by spammers are smart and talented people too so they alway come up with ways to defeat most filters.

The Unix program Mail.app which is bundled with Mac OS X has this function and is effective in many cases.
Nice to know but 99 % of mankind has a pc These functions are not restricted to Mac's and certain OS'es only. A good mailclient has them too ( or should have them )

Although I have a Mac myself I am beginning to dislike the U-word in combination with MacOS X. It's like keep on saying that there is alcohol in wine.

Mailwasher is a good program to bounce mail but unfortunately they have become commercial and the latest version is not free anymore. The version before that can still be downloaded and is free. Just Google for mailwasher2b28.exe and I think you will find the file.
