Unspamming yourself…
If you put your e-mail address at the end of a press release, or if you are on mailing lists or have your contact details on a web site, you are, no doubt, getting spammed.

There’s nothing worse than coming into the office and spending half and hour adding another fifty addresses to your junk filter. At the same time you have to be careful, because as a communicator, any legitimate e-mail is important.

What are you to do? I’ve found Cloudmark and although not perfect, I have to say I am impressed by it. It’s easy to use, free (so far!), and has already caught all my existing spam and is very good at catching new spams as they arrive.

It works by monitoring the spams you are getting and matching those with the spam lists of other users. So without doing anything you are getting an always up-to-date spam net.

You can download it for free from the Cloudmark web site.
