Compliments of the Season! One of my new years resolutions is to reduce the amount of Spam I get. I did post about this some time ago, and I think I have managed to solve it.
I get an awful lot of Spam in Cyrillic - which I don't really want to see. My other Spam I would prefer to view before deciding what to do with it. I am using Spam Bully which works very well, but the problem was it moved ALL Spam into one folder (Cyrillic or not) and there was no way to change this.
I came up with the idea, that I use Spam Bully to find ONLY Cyrillic and Black listed mails & move them to the deleted items folder.
Problem then is there was no filter being applied for regular Spam. So, I installed Agnitum Spam Terrier (which also uses Bayesian Filter) and this works great.
My Cyrillic e-mail is deleted and my other Spam is filtered into a seperate folder for me to deal with - job done!
There may be a better way but it works for me.
Anyway (I feel like I am telling an Xmas Story here!!!) since I installed this Spam Terrier there is a small problem that I didn't have before.
When I close Outlook Express (I have Outlook Express 6) the process continues to run. The only solution I have found is stopping msimn.exe from the Task Manager - which is a bit of a chore, plus, I am reading not really recommended.
I found a program that I could download that would kill the process automatically 30 seconds after closing - but my machine crashed before I could download it, and I couldn't find it again!!!
I am also reading on various sites that msimn.exe is serious Spyware? Nothing is found on my scans... I have a found a detailed method of how to remove it - but is it a threat?
So, do you guys have a solution? Is this process Spyware and if so can I delete it without deleting Spam Terrier?
Thanks for reading - and in advance for your help!!
