I used to only receive 2 or 3 SPAM emails a week in my .mac mail account, and even then, Mail could filter them out pretty easily. But now, The amount of SPAM I receive as skyrocketted. I now receive about a dozen or so SPAM emails a DAY! More mail than my legitimate non spam emails. Mail is only able to filter out about 30% of it, even with the dozens of new rules I programmed in the preferences. (i.e.: If message contains Viagra, move to folder spam trash) Even then, my custom rules only work half of the time because malovelent spammers mispell (on purpose) key words so their message won't get filtered out. Ex.: they often spell viagra: V I A G R A and things like that. Also, they beginned replacing their text ads by jpeg images. A word filter can't search a jpeg pic for specific words. So I can't filter them all. I don't want to block every mails containing jpeg images because I often receive legitimates one containing such files. I Used to report evety SPAM mail I got using little pieces of software and websites but now, due to the increasing volume, it would take me more than an hour to do so each day. I used to click on the "remove me from list" link at the bottom of each mail but then I read an article that said that you should absolutly not do this. Whats more, I've heard recently on the news from a senator that laws against SPAM were a bad idea and that solutions should come from software. I bet that this old geezer don't even use emails or else he would speak differently. Of course, a law against SPAM would only work in the country it has been instigated and would'nt protect you against foreign SPAM but the vast majority of all spam comes from the USA anyway. Recent studies have shown than more than 90% of all unrequested emails were deceptive or Fraud. The volume of SPAM email on the net each day is bigger than regular mail. I can't even change by .mac mail address. Apple won't allow it. Also, it would be sad to change it 'cause I was one of the early adopters and was able to have my name as my address. Anyone care to discuss this issue?
