Default SPAM blocking

Sorry I know it's off topic but I don't know how to block it or
delete.

I'm using Outlook Express with newsdemon or googlegroups

I'm open to suggestions

No hope there, I'm afraid. Google still make income on spammer posts so
are not keen to block them.

I use Thunderbird and have some filters set up to drop threads that
match criteria such as email address and subject. You should be able to
do much the same in Outlook Express.

If it gets much worse, there are some news providers that will filter
the feed for you.

I am using Eternal -September here, with no local filtering and I am hardly seeing
any spam in this group, although this wasn't the case a few weeks ago.
I just took a peep at GG, and ICWYM!

Eternal-September is free, and the server administrator is very accessible
if you have any queries.

In Windows Live Mail (replaces OE) right click then junk email then add
sender block AND senders domain to junk list works 100 % for me.

Funny that, Gmail has one of the best spam filters around. I route my
mail via a Gmail account for precisely this reason - my spam dropped
overnight from 150+ a day to less than a dozen.

I second the use of Thunderbird.

Actually, as spam blocking goes, gmail is pretty lame. It's nothing
special compared with anything else and I suspect it's built upon
Postini, seeing gmail/google own it.

What is relevant is gmail/google/postini ranges are *known* sources of
spam. It's not uncommon to see operators of non-trivial mail servers
restricting or blocking such ranges.

Logged in to Google Groups, there is a report spam button

Once I discovered it about a month ago, I started reporting. The spam
would disappear sometimes in a day or two, or on one occasion within
seconds (I noticed the number of threads dropping on changing pages).

So I was hoping that the filters could be educated into recognising
some of the common spammers ...

But after a huge clean-up, to the point were this group had only about
a handful or two of spam threads remaining in the last 12 months, it's
stopped working

Whether the system is automatic and has failed, I'm starting to doubt,
and I'm now wondering if deletions were being done manually and
someone has got fed up with being overworked
