Yes I loaded up 0 Spam but only had it in use for about 20 mins, so sorry if I bounced any mail.I found the prog. not so easy to set up (for me) so I have opted for choiceMail One which does the same job as 0spam but was easier to set up. The first thing I did was add to my whitelist mail addresses and senders domains that I wanted to receive mail from, and so far this news group and others seem to be ok. The prog. seems to work well (for me). again sorry for bouncing any mail, It won't happen again (I hope)!!! Colin Thompson Ps. If I new how to make up and use an alias e-mail or whatever I need to do I probably wouldn't have got so much Spam. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Spider" <spider1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Saturday, September 27, 2003 1:02 PM Subject: [24hoursupport] Re: bouncing emails > > This is a user spam control method rather then an ISP.
