I'm getting way too much spam every day and after reporting it to my cable ISP, they said there's nothing they can do and advised me to try changing my email name to something less intuitive! So I was wondering which anti-spam software works really well.

Of the 3, I tried McAfee's SpamKiller and it wasn't all that effective (quite a bit of spam still got thru). Do you have any personal experience with the 1st two? I never even heard of Kill the Spams!

Thanks

Yup, even Mailwasher Pro. IMHO this type of anti-spam software (head 'em off at the server) is no more effective than deleting the cr*p yourself from OE's inbox and requirs more effort!

One thing ive done is set up a junk email account on Hotmail
Any web page that asks for my email i give them the hotmail address instead of my real one. seems to work pretty good. plus u can block the address in hotmail which should send it back as undeliverable.
