  1. Spam problem

    Hi.

    I use to receive several spam emails (100 a day) in my mailbox and I
    just can't handle the problem efficiently. Is there any way to stop my
    mailbox from being infested ? I am currently using Thunderbird 1.5 and
    spamassasin as my filter.

    Thank you !

    Have you tried changing the scoring on Spamassassin? BTW, the spam on
    my system is post-processed by procmail that trashes mail that
    spamassassin marks as spam before it gets to my mailbox.

    You could use a different filter. I had the same problem with spamassasin
    got fed up with it. I tried bogofilter and was more than just happy with
    it. Out of about 200 E-Mails only one was falsely marked as spam and only
    two were falsely marked as not spam.

    But I don't know how to use it with Thunderbird as I am using KMail instead.
