I’ve had it up to *here* (waving my hand high over my head) with spam. Spam, spam, spam. I went an entire weekend without checking my e-mail, and the following Monday I was greeted with over 300 spam e-mails. Augh! Enough.
Matt has been talking about how he is almost spam free, and he has the perfect system set up to rescue me from my spam. “Save me!,” I cried, over and over again. Step 1 was that I needed to finally set up Spam Assassin. (As soon as I know the rest of the steps, I’ll write up the whole process and share.)
I had to do something before I started getting e-mail from people that supposedly saw me at work like Jennifer. I’ve never used Spam Assassin before. I guess I was afraid it would kill all of my good e-mail too. Somethinig like that, doesn’t matter now. What matters now is that my spam is being “Assassinated”. Well, ok. That and the points.
Each spam e-mail is assigned points basied on the contents of that spam message. The higher the points, the more spammy that spam content is. So now, as I delete them, I keep track of which one is the highest point spam message. Right now we’re sitting at 40.20 points, but that could be beat out any day now! What’s your highest spam points? Do I get a prize for this if I win?
