I have used Prism Email for years. At first it was free. As my email address is all over the web, it got to be too much and now I'm charged for it.
Here's an example of how much spam I get:
Statistics from Prism Email for this year only:
Prism email this year:
71,527 spams caught.
You can see the problem. I have to go online to Prism Email 10 times a day to delete the spam. Most of it doesn't reach my OE email, but enough does. And some that doesn't reach OE is not spam at all, so it's important to check online so I can download good mail when they catch it as spam. I can do only so much with Bayesian/Statistical, white-list and black-list at Prism Email.
Much worse is that I really don't understand email. As it is now, my POP3 and SMTP shows as prismemail.com. If I were to use my hosting co. it would be different and the spam would overwhelm me. I've tried that. And I know I can change my email address, but cannot do that with my primary email address as I've had it for all these years and people know that email to get in touch with me. It's all very confusing to me.
Question: is there a way, or a spam filter you would recommend that will do what Prism Email does [they really are pretty good--in fact I would recommend them for those who don't have web sites and their email all over the web. Works great for my wife, and the little she gets is still free from Prism Email.] but without the cost?
Recommendations much appreciated. Thank you.
