    Getting Spam? Check this out...

    New spammer tool foils filters


    ...The feature allows spammers to make their zombie-sent e-mail appear as if it were sent directly from an Internet service provider's systems. Since it's not feasible to filter out an entire Internet provider's e-mail, the new SendSafe program foils the entire blacklisting system, Linford says.

    "Internet users are going to be flooded in spam," Linford predicted. Spam is already about three-fourths of all e-mail, he said.

    In taking the above msg to be true..
    I guess if my email address was shinobi@speedguide.net and my ISP, just for example was the same "speedguide.net".... My email "filters" would have to be set to allow only certain account names from "speedguide.net" and block any "unknown" addresses with the same domain. hmmm...

    Easy way. Filter out any email without a proper header password. Example:

    Subject: [SafeWord] Hi! -- This is safe, they used your safe word.

    Subject: Re: Mom's request. -- This is not safe, no safe word in brackets.

    Subject: Re: [SafeWord] Mom's request. -- This is safe, they used your safe word.

    That's helped me a LOT.
