Re: [Killietalk] Help (OT, SPAM stuff)
To get killietalk through the SPAM filter, all you usually need to do is
to be sure it is in your address book. I know little about Outlook or
Outlook Express, because no one that I know would even allow them on
their personal machine. [They used to be the prime target for every
virus known to email.]
I find Mozilla's "Thunderbird" is a pretty adequate (and free!) mail
program. I also believe Qualcomm's "Eudora" (free trial or modest cost?)
is a fairly competent and safe program. There are others, but I believe
the ones that come with Windoze and/or MSOffice are still considered
suspect, despite multiple flurries of security upgrades. They probably
are just fine behind a supervised corporate hardware-based firewall, but
questionable for home use, IMHO.
I recently did just what you did, and removed the SPAM filter at
verizon.net. WOW! Did I ever get a deluge of junk, which totally
overloaded the adaptive SPAM filter built into Thunderbird. Guess I have
to switch back. :-[
Try adding the killietalk at aka_org list to your address book, and
turning the YAHOO SPAM filter back on. Hope that works.
PS. Obligatory killy content: I made it to the BAKA meeting in Sept.,
but missed Nov. Hope to make it this month, too. For those not near a
local affiliate, let me point out that it is a rough (high mountains
with snow) 8-9 hours EACH WAY in winter. [I don't want to hear it that
you are "too far."] I hope to give BAKA a power point show on my recent
visit to Singapore.
[Maybe I should go to the SCKC and/or ARK winter meetings and just do
BAKA in summer? :-D ]
