Fighting SPAM and viruses is becoming an enormous job, and it's just seeming to get worse. I get literally thousands of emails every day now that are either SPAM or have been generated by the various emails going around right now. I've got multiple lines of defense, including Spam Assassin, SPAM filtering with my Mozilla email program, and a virus scanner, but it's just getting worse and worse.
Obviously, the problem is happening because my email is published on my website, but I don't think I should have to remove it. I still like to get legitimate email from readers, etc.
Not only that, but on the flip side, the Universe Today newsletter is getting blocked by overenthusiastic SPAM-blocking programs. So I'm having to intervene with various email providers, like Yahoo and AOL to convince them that the newsletter isn't SPAM.
Anyway, I know there's not much else I can do about this, but wait for Microsoft to close up the holes in its operating system, and some kind of legislation to catch up with spammers, but... it's really getting out of hand. :-(
Anyone had any success in getting this under control?
