QUOTE (dbclass50 @ 1 May 2007, 20:09) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hope someone here has some suggestions !

We have a spam problem to the tune of 2-300 spams every 24 hrs - mainly our fault as our e-mail address is in "plain" on our website.

Currently, we use Incredimail for our e-mails but now it seems overwhelmed & can no longer filter out or block spam.

Any suggestions please ? - we gave up using Outlet for the same reasons about 3 years ago.

Also, anyone know of any software we can use to divert our e-mails through the sort of system that means "new" or "unapproved" senders have to go through the "enter the code from the jumbled letters" type system that you have to use on some sites ?

Hopefully, thanks in advance.

We use a combination of Spam Assassin and our own home-grown filtering. This gets nearly all spam.
GppSoftware runs an eGroups system and as a result of this, we get well in excess of 500-600 spams per day. Spam Assassin and our own code deals with it.

I have my own theory as to how to stop the world's spam problem overnight: cut all the internet cables which connect the US to the rest of the world - afterall, that is where nearly ALL of our spam originates from but goes via mail relays in Russia, China and a few other Asian countries.
