Man, if it wasn't bad enough receiving all those virus mails that promise 'a
very powful tool,' or 'a very humour game,' and of course the inevitable 'I send
you this file in order to have your advice,' the inundation from the latest
Windows mail worm has gotten equally out of hand. I'm talking of course, about
the 'Enjoy this friendship Screen Saver and Check ur friends circle...' dealie
that's been making the rounds, apparently the W32.Yaha.E@mm
worms. I guess I'll look at the screensaver later, right now I'm off to catch a
'Spice Girls vocal concert.'
Yeah... the spice girls thing is another virus reference. I got that email twice that I recall. Some of these I didn't even realize were viruses at the time. I just thought they were stupid spam and deleted them. But I don't run Outlook, so I mostly don't have to worry too much about these things. I just don't open files if I don't know what they are.

I recommend Mailwasher (http://www.mailwasher.net/). It downloads the Headers of your email and compares their origins with Spam Blacklists. It can then automatically mark them for Deletion & Bouncing (makes it appear as though your address doesn't exist). I've been using it for a month and it seems pretty good.
This is Blue's News, and since Ive read it for quite some time it has earned my trust, in fact i cant find any other site on the net more decent and trustworthy than this one. Im still hiding it for the readers though.
And i have yet to recieve a single spam mail.
