Can anyone explain to me why it's legal for assholes to invade either my private or work e-mail with spam about viagra, penis enlargement, breast enlargement, home loans, mortgage rates, Russian brides, credit cards, and domain names? I spend way too much time every day deleting these.

I get these all of the time. I find that Outlook filters them pretty well - and there is also a program by Norton called Antispam which is pretty effective, with available downloads via LiveUpdate.

Give me a holler if you need it.

Get Mozilla. It has a Baysian spam filter that, unlike the one in its evil twin, Netscape, doesn't crash things when you play with it. The filter learns what you consider to be spam and what you think is valid (it starts ass-backwards, though, which is annoying). It doesn't take long for it to learn and it keeps improving each time you correct it. And it is free.

Or stop playing around on those sports-oriented Web sites, encouraging everybody to pick up your address and spam you.
