Anti Spam Review
Spam is email that really isnít targeted to the reader. Anybody who receives email,
knows spam when they see it. The simple response to spam is Ďdelete!í
Adware and Spyware sends junk mail to everyone. Postal junk mail (snail mail) is
limited by a 44¢ cost per item. The internet is a bit different, but sending
thousands of emails does take serious server resources. Most ISP's (Internet Service
Providers) want extra for this huge expenditure of server time.
- Legitimate businesses pay their costs, then,
work hard to target the audience who
actually wants their product.
- Adware makers don't pay their costs, but,
find ways to use other peoples resources (which we end up paying for).
They essentially send "Postage-Due Junk Email" and they really
don't care if you want it or not!
Many people would detest knowing their machine was acting as a "Zombie,"
participating in product ads they are unknowingly helping to spread.
This is how Adware and Spam Email shows a profit with lousy conversion rates. It's a
lot like borrowing someones postage meter without asking. With good Windows anti

The real problem with spam email is the shear volume. People ask their Internet
Service Provider (ISP) to do an anti spam review and deletion. Unfortunately, they
also complain if someone canít get legitimate email to them. This leaves the ISP in
the precarious position of deciding which emails are really spam.
Spam detection works best in 2 stages|
- ISP deletes junk from known spammers,
along with virus infected emails etc.
- User deletes stuff they personally don't want.
Most ISPís try to block absolute spam, but leave the rest for the customer to decide.
It isnít unusual during an ISP's anti spam review, to block many times more spam
emails than legitimate email, and still have junk sneak through. Spammers are
constantly innovating new ways to sneak junk into your inbox.
An ISP should block email from known spam sources. You might think they should also
block emails with certain word combinations. This becomes problematic. For instance,
some customers have medical conditions requiring some of those pesky drug names.
Deleting emails from their doctor could create problems much worse than spam.
In response, most ISPís give each email a spam score. As each email is checked,
different problems add appropriately to the score. Once the score surpasses
acceptable levels, they are marked or deleted.
Personal Anti Spam Review

message rules to send the spam messages to junk, or where ever you choose.

It allows you to program your spam filters. Each time you mark junk, Thunderbird
remembers what you blocked and tries to block similar things later.
Make sure you check your Thunderbird junk folder regularly. You might find messages
you actually want in there. You need to unjunk the good messages. This also helps
program the spam filters. I check and delete my junk folders daily, for simplicity.
