Whether it's by intent or poor design, KwikCop seems to be more trouble than
it's worth as a spam filter. I'm signed up with SpamWeasel, which seems to
be doing a fairly good job but has the annoying feature of sending me an
e-mail notice of each spam item it rejected. In other words, spamming me
about the spam it rejected. It also send me a daily e-mail 'log', a
detailed textfile of all the e-mail it processed on that date, including the
full text of each piece of e-mail. A simple one-line itemization for each
rejection would be fine.
Outlook Express' Message/Block Sender feature isn't much help because most
of the spam generators use a random numeric sender's address which is
different each time that sender spams you. The one you blocked will
probably never be used again anyhow.
Does anyone know of a spam-blocking program that works without itself
