Not for sure if this is the right forum. If not, please let me know where I might post it. I have a question about software to get rid of unwanted emails. Right now I have NOrton Anitvirus and my sister suggested Norton Internet Security. I just wanted some opinions on these or if there is something better out there! Thanks!!

Are you talking about unwanted advertsing email (Spam)? If so, what program are you using to read your email, and how much do you regularly receive?

I would first check if your ISP offers any spam blocking options. Many do, some are free, some for a small charge (ISP's don't like SPAM either, it costs them money). If they don't, I really like Cloudmark's Spamnet. There are free beta versions still available for Outlook, but for Outlook Express you need to subscribe at $3.99/month (first month free). I've used the free beta version, and it really works nice.

I've also read some good things about Qurb ($29.95), but I haven't tried it (here's a PC Magazine article). I have tried the McAfee's Spam Blocker, not impressed.

Maybe we'll get some feedback from other members on their recommendations.

A more drastic solution is to change your email address. Only give your new email address to trusted contacts. Sign up for a free email account (i.e. hotmail, yahoo, etc), and use this free email address whenever you submit your email address online.
