Porn Spam: It’s Getting Raunchier.

Porn Spam: It’s Getting Raunchier. Disturbing, explicit and sometimes-illegal pornographic images are popping up more and more, unsolicited, in e-mail boxes everywhere. Observers worry even the sickest perversions may become more mainstream as a result. By Julia Scheeres. [Wired News]

This morning I had 20 pieces of spam waiting for me (in the Junk folder) when I first checked mail… Sure the occasional (prob – 5-6/day) spam messages get by the filter, but the amount of time I spend dealing with Spam has been greatly reduced. I used to use Entourage, but I had to create all kinds of filters – if not in my addressbook, if one of my 5 email addresses is not actually listed…you get the idea.

The other main issue I had was that Mail to the best of my knowledge seems to be “smarter” in managing my filters. Based on the sequential way Entourage handled my 30+ filters, I had to be careful where in my list of rules any news ones were to go. It was very easy to send mail to the wrong place or not send it at all if a rule cancelled another out.

I get a serious amount of spam each day and to know that my mail client is intelligent enough to make the decision to pre-sort for me is just a wonderful thing.

BTW – there were another 3 messages waiting in the Junk folder for my easy deletion when I finished writing this…
