TELECOM Digest OnLine - Sorted: Its the Spam Problem, Again

Its the Spam Problem, Again

Today, Thursday, I was confronted with 153 spam items in the _regular_
mail box; not the 'spam box' where Spam Assassin throws its stuff; I
am speaking of the items which got through into regular mail. These
spam items were so wound up and intermixed with the regular, good
stuff that a half-dozen or so good items got lost in the process,
including one of the regular features here each day, 'cellular-news'.

I use the old-fashioned Unix mail program called 'mailx' here on the
Digest stuff, and I guess I am going to have to switch to something
more modern, rather than continually battling with the spam (and
occassionally losing, due to my clumsy fingers) as I did today.
