    Updating Netscape has nothing to do with anything, and although this is
    a virus, you're using a Mac, which is immune to it, so you don't need
    an antivirus program.
     

    Wait. How did you get from a full mailbox to there being something wrong
    with your computer? There is nothing wrong with your computer. The only
    problem is that you're getting too much email and your ISP isn't willing
    to deal with the problem.
     

    No; there is no problem with, or relating to, your computer whatsoever.

    It's not even close to impossible; 5 minutes of coding could block 95%
    plus of them. ISPs who can't or won't do so, don't deserve customers.
    Spam is trickier to identify, but the filters my provider uses block
    all but 1 or 2 messages per day, with nearly 100 in the spam-bucket
    per day. It's possible to do a very good job of it. if enough ISPs
    would kill spam (and viruses) at the server, then the transport mechanism
    for both dies, making each of them less interesting to the perpetrators.

    Ahem. Sorry, got on a bit of a rant there, how uncharacteristic of me.

    Had the same problem. First changed ISP (actually went to DSL) and then
    give a spurious E Mail address on all news groups. Lastly, stay away
    from Google groups. The latter (by my wife) increased our spam by about
    500 per-cent.

    No spam in four months.

    No. My Entourage [set to the highest degree in the Junk Mail Filter]
    clearly identifies it as junk mail - and nicely put in in the Deleted
    Items folkder. Unfortunately, it also identifies non-junk mail as junk
    mail, but then I identify it as excactly that.

    I've received 110 of these junk messages this morning. But I get rid of
    them by deleting them from the Deleted Items folder - which means that
    they are deleted from the server too. Just select Tools->Accounts->»your
    account«->Options and mark »Delete messages from the server after they
    are deleted from this computer.« Also select a small number of days
    before more normal messages are deleted.

    The original poster used Netscape; I think a proper setting should be
    able to set there too.

    Could you explain this? Unless you mean posting through google, I don't see
    any way how using google groups could result in spam.

    Maybe I should have just said "get a new ISP". With a decent ISP, the
    virus is much, much less of a problem. With Earthlink you're apparently
    ed and must suffer through it in the worst possible way.

    You can definitely do that, although I prefer to just pick it up from
    Spamcop's POP server.

    I've gone back and forth on that, and it comes down to portability. Right
    now, I'm out of town so it's more convenient to read my mail by webmail,
    so I'm leaving it on spamcop's server for that purpose. Any idea, by
    the way, what webmail app they use? It's decidedly non-crappy, and I'd like
    to look into something likethat for a work project.
