Default Just blocked all Yahoo email addys!!

A good 75% of my daily spam emails are yahoo. Blocked all emails ending with yahoo.com. I am hoping that now no one will know how big I am and that I am in debt and need their help.

I allways get those damn emails saying "grow 3 inches guranteed" hell I just erase them and don't even open them. If I was 3 inches taller I'd have to get all new clothes.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but many of them will come through anyway because the "return email" addresses are faked. Best of Luck.

Read recently that 60% of the email on the net is spam nowadays.

I think the growth they mention is horizontal and just below the belt line...

I got so sick of junk mail that I set my filter to send everything to junk mail except for addresses I specifically list.

If you use Outlook, put a "dot" in the rules wizard. Blocks everything not on your exception list.

You might check into something like CloudMark for blocking your SPAM instead of blocking the whole Yahoo.com domain.

13 inches would be too big of a tool anyway.

I need to devote all of my spare time to this site and/or being on a boat.
