Tom: "The guy's just trying to make a living"???? So is a mugger. I'm under no obligation whatsoever to provide "the guy" access to me, and I consider spamming and junk mail nothing less than metastasis of our communication system. Have you already forgotten what happened to Yahoo and some other services when someone set up a virus to flood them with mail? Brought everything there to a standstill. You couldn't have gotten to a delete key if you were in the middle of it.

I'll put up with having to hit the delete key once or twice or even 10 times in a single day, maybe. But I get about 20 messages I have to act on each day, and if they're buried in 40 spam/junk messages, it is a real problem. I don't owe anyone or any organization that kind of power over my time.

Go to Hotmail and set up a free account. Tag it to dump the bulk mail. Make up other rules that block offensive senders. Use the delete all box and save your personal box for communication you want.
