      Re: spam

      In all reality you cant....

      It's the way of the internet.

      Here's mine from today as an attachment. Best thing to do is update Outlook with the latest spam definitions or get some additional software to block the spam. There was a program called mailwasher.

      Re: spam

      I use a small program called K9 which after a day or two of training should be able to filter your spam for you by adding something to the title of the mail which you can then filter with your mail client.

      Another way round it is to use Gmail if you have an account. Gmail lets you pick up mail from 5 other accounts and their spam filters are pretty good. Since I have been collecting my Sky mail this way not one piece of spam has got through to my mail client, Thunderbird on my PC.

      Maybe Sky will someday start using Spam filters. Plusnet did it and I hardly ever receive spam through them. At one time it was up to 50 a day! (I still have an email account with +net)

      Re: spam

      I would have thought when the new online mail service with Google goes live Sky will have the use of Google spam filters which are pretty much spot on in my view.
