I think I mentioned before that I use Cloudmark's SafetyBar spam catcher. It 
automatically catches most spam and puts it in a spam folder on your PC, which 
you clean out about once a week or so. Also, you can block stuff that 
accidentally gets into your in-box by using the mouse or Jaws cursor. When you 
block a message, the notice that you blocked it goes to every other user of 
SafetyBar, so everybody who uses the program gets the benefit. I pay an annual 
fee to subscribe to this service; it's about $40 and well worth it. That's why 
I was so surprised when I got the spam I told you about yesterday. SafetyBar 
blocks out at least 99 percent of spam junk mail, but occasionally something 
slips through, usually something in a foreign language. The key to this is that 
it's effortless but you have to clean out the spam folder because sometimes a 
legitimate message gets in there, like a newsletter, so in that case you 
un-block it so it always goes to your in-box because it's a newsletter you 
subscribed to.
