Spam A Lot

Many people realize that stopping e-mail spam at the source,
while effective, is not easy. This TechWeb
on the state of Massachusetts’ efforts to stop just
one spam ring is illustrative of the problems.

For example, they are trying to catch a Russian, living in
Boston, using domains registered in Monaco, Australia and France,
and servers in China, Korea, Brazil and Taiwan.

All I can say is good luck.

In the mean time, use spam filters such as, but not limited
to, SpamAssassin,
PopFile, or Clam Anti-Virus and you should
be able to catch 98 percent of the spam before it makes it to
your in box.
