Hi Howard and all.
I too get fustrated by spammers.. but there is an organization fighting to
clean up the spammers act.. and they have a free download that you can
install that allows you to send in reports of spaming to them and the
spammers ISP it's quite easy to use and eventuall allows ISP owners and
filters the spammers address from your computer.
you can get info at
Happy New Year,
