Better than a Shun

I don't know if any of you use a program called Mailwasher?
http://www.firetrust.com/

What this program does is to download the headers from all your emails and
allow you to see these whilst still on your ISP's server.
You then have a choice to delete any spam and also to set up automatic
filters for Viagra, meds, loans etc.
I have been using this for a few months and found it to help with email a
lot.

Even better though is a beta program called Newsblock that does exactly the
same with news groups as does Mailwasher.
It down loads the latest posts just as if they were on your machine but
then applies filters to them.I set this up two days ago with the words
Gareth, Airy, Bean, G4SDW, his email address, plus a couple of other
'links'

I have been reading this list on Google as well as from my ISP.
Result with Newsblock I get NO mention of our friend, none, zilch, not even
an echo.
It even removes any replies that apply to the twat.

So he's dead, don't exist, don't matter anymore.

YEEHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I'll second a recommendation for mailwasher. When Spam levels hit 200+ per
day I was thinking about changing e-mail addresses until someone suggested
this programme. Now it doesn't matter how much Spam comes through, it sorts
it in a few moments and deletes it at the ISP leaving me to download only
legitimate e-mail into my mail programme. As an added bonus it can delete
viruses at the ISP before you download them as well.

Newsblock seems worth taking a look at as well, thanks for the tip John.

How does everybody read this newsgroup? At the moment I use outlook
express, which is set up so that everytime I "synchronise all" it sends and
receives any e-mail and also downloads any new posts on the newsgroups.
This is partly because I only have a 54K dial up access to the internet.
But now I've moved I should be able to get broadband. What other options
for reading newsgroups does this offer?

Regards

Kevin

I'll agree with John & Kevin, it's useful, if an extra bit of stuff to run and

Don't 'need' that at present as I can happily ignore most of the monster raving
loony posts.

We're in broadband with BT, and have all of our home PC's networked (some are
work machines, the rest are for other members of the family) so having a fast
connection is very useful, especially on a Sunday evening when we are all
browsing the ebay sites!

We've never used Outlook Express or Internet Explorer except for the very early
IE 4.01 which we dropped when it went to IE4.5 and changed to Netscape, then
changed to Opera and Agent when Netscape got involved with AOL.

Agent is very good indeed, but takes a bit of setting up, and while there is a
V2.0 out now, we have stayed with V1.93 as we prefer the interface. Opera is a
bit of a personal taste, but we have stayed with it and find it to be a very
good web browser, only problem is that a lot of sites won't recognise the
browser and refuse to run. There is a way round this in the programme setup
which allows the browser to be indentified as IE or Netscape if needed.

Peter, the nice thing about this program is that it also filters out
replies when other answer his posts.
It's OK using a kill file but that doesn't handle any replies from
others.Today for instance I have only two post relevant to the threads he's
been using, yours and Kevins.
There may not have been any others, I don't know that's the best bit.
Some of the guys from uk.radio have emailed for the program link, they are
that fed up.

I am going to have a look at that as well it sounds just what I need.

As you see from my headers I use Pan for news groups and its seems to do
most things for me.

I am on broadband but make sure that whoever you sign up with has a full
service - not all do.

I can understand that John. I will download it in a few minutes and give
an Airey Fairy goodbye. :-)

Re: Better than a Shun

I can vouch for Mailwasher too. I have been using it for several years now.
A bonus is that my ISP has a filter that puts the word "spam" in the header
of the stuff. It is now quite accurate, after being in use for 6 months or
so. I have several filters in Mailwasher. A "not to me" filter, marks all
email that is not specifically addressed to me for deletion. Another looks
for the word "spam" in the subject line, and marks it for deletion. It works
like a charm!

Re: Better than a Shun

Download the headers only.

Mark the obvious trolls such as Stevenson and Heapy as "Read"

Then page down to your hearts content.
