Zero Spam Without Paying a Dime

Team ITC Welcomes Me!

You know, making your e-mail address public (sid@dailyrundown.com) means getting ready for spam. Not just one, but masses of it. And sometimes, if you’re like me, it’ll get to a point where you do not want to see it ever again — not even one piece of it, you don’t want to click on the “Junk” button on Thunderbird (although that helps), you just want a clean, spam-free mailbox.

Before I knew about Spamihilator, SpamAssassin and the Thunderbird “adaptive” filter, (and was on OutlookExpress and then a little while later on Outlook) I tried out almost everything, many I couldn’t get setup, many I had to pay for, and some which didn’t last that long. But now I have a perfectly spam-free mailbox, I use Spamihiliator to stop the spam before it getting there in my mailbox, Spamassasin to mark it as spam to help Spamihilator, and just incase it gets in — a few Thunderbird filters to recognize those marked by SpamAssassin, along side a pretty experienced (5-6 weeks) adaptive filter. It’s been a few days since I’ve seen any spam, except of course, marking all messages as spam within Spamihilator for it to learn, like every three or four days.

I strongly suggest, to anyone who received the masses, to try out either of the three techniques I mentioned (I of course use all three just for precaution) — Thunderbird, Spamihilator or SpamAssassin. But note that, by any chance you think SpamAssassin is the overall solution to spam — it’s not, it’s half of it. You still need your mail client to recognize messages marked by ‘assassin and to move them in your junk or trash folder.

See, zero spam without paying a dime. :-)
