Default Eliminates SPAM for good!

Two points:
1. MS Outlook is a nice basic reader and most people use it (including me)
because it's easy to use, and because it's there. Paul made one hell of a
good suggestion that will benefit most people.
2. Finish YOUR "helpful" suggestion by recommending your "real" newsreader?

After reading up on how to use all the advanced features of MS Outlook
Express this past week, all of the crap incoming email and unwanted NG
posts have disappeared. If anyone is using OE and/or having the same
problems, I would strongly suggest that you take a trip to the MS
website and download the 2 - 3 pages on Blocking Messages Using Rules.

It's a great thing....................







Using Outlook Express in any serious way is kind of like using single ply
toilet paper to do what you need 4 ply for. Get a real newsreader.

When you get a virus and it sends itself to everybody in your OE Address
Book, then you'll see why.

Xnews or Free Agent are both free newsreaders that outperform OE and are
not susceptible to viruses.

Do some research and learn something about computer security. Stop trusting

They are both a pain in the ass to use. Outlook Express is much easier to
use in my opinion.

The type of newsreader you use has nothing what-so-ever to do with
virus susceptability. The virus is activated when you open a message
attachment containing one. Do some research, take your own advice.

What you need is a good AV program that will scan your mail/usenet
messages. I use McAfee and am happy with it.

I've used Agent (Free and paid) for years, and find it an excellent
program. The paid version has tremendous filtering capabilities.

Ciao!

What do they open the virus containing email with? Outlook Express.

If you think these simple to use newsreaders are a pain in the ass to use,
then you didn't do your homework very well.

Only recently did I learn to use Xnews' awesome scorefile ability, and then
because I was forced to, so to speak. It was easy as pie. I didn't have to
go to microsoft.com and read two pages of their technical gibberish,
either.

Outlook Express may be easy to use, but it's also very easy for those
viruses to use.

If Outlook Express and Internet Explorer didn't exist, the terms "computer
virus" and "security risk" would be almost unknown.
