The onslaught of spam continues to be everyone’s number one complaint. Recently I’ve been hearing very nice things about a program named I Hate Spam, from Sunbelt Software. It’s spam blocking software that works with either Outlook or Outlook Express, and reportedly blocks 95% of the spam. It does this by several techniques – among other things, it allows all messages through from people in your address book, and it blocks all messages from spam mailers identified in a list that’s updated every day. Here’s an article that describes it in detail. (I’ve seen one article comment that it’s far more effective in Outlook than in Outlook Express, for what it’s worth.) I’m going to give it a try – if it can cut down the clutter, it’s well worth twenty dollars.
