wademh: Vegan Meat Popsicle: wademh: On my work email, they manage to filter out 50% of my legitimate email and somehow think that improves efficiency.Do you not have the ability to mark things as spam/not spam or whitelist certain senders or domains?Not as a user. They don't send things through at all. They also maintain a 5 mb limit on attachment size which really sucks when you have to send around presentations for comment/editing. I miss having quality IT support.
Yankees Team Gynecologist: fusillade762: I don't get spam anymore because I don't use my primary email addy for anything online. I thought everyone had a secondary account for petitions and such.It's a balancing act. If you shelter your "primary" address too much it's useless. I tried that approach and eventually the spam did come shortly after registering with a reputable site, albeit not as heavily as my condom address.Then there's the likelihood that your address will end up with spammers because friends or family members get infected with spyware. Or because spammers just try every pre-@ username combination.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: What are you using? We're using a Barracuda 800 at our main site and a 200 at each branch office and they work unbelievably well. Basically just plugged them in, set the networking and a few preferences up and changed a couple routing groups in our Exchange array and we were done, it's hummed along ever since without a problem. Plus it has the little outlook plugin you can push across the network to clients so they can manage almost everything themselves right within Outlook however is best for them.We still get complaints about legit emails getting caught but now it's just a matter of educating them on whitelisting and managing their own spam/not spam every now and then instead of tweaking rules.
ChubbyTiger: Gmail is best mail. I get maybe one spam message a week. Maybe. Lots of useless crap from the crazy uncle, but I can't just send everything of his to the spam folder.
