In Search Of An Email Spam Buster

I am absolutely pissed off at the amount of email spam I have been getting that I have decided to do something about it. You must admit that over 400 spam emails is a little over the top and so begins my search for a decent ‘Email Spam buster’.

The first one I am trying was found in this blog’s very own Google Adsense and is called Cloudmark Desktop and I must admit it is pretty damn good. So far it has caught almost every single spam and the few that it didn’t I just blocked them for future reference. Every time this is done those particular emails are added to the database so that they will never bother anyone else.

You get a 15 day free trial and it works on Outlook, Outlook Express and Thunderbird and after that it will set you back $39.95 which isn’t all that much for a spam free life, but I want to see if I can get a freebie first before parting with my hard earned cash.

Update: I’ve just noticed that the $39.95 is renewable every year and therefore it has lost it’s appeal for me.
