Subject: fight spam (unsolicited email ads)


Like most of you, I am tired of unsolicited email ads (AKA spam). I
received the following this morning from a graphic design firm in
California where my brother works. Essentially, it's a spam filter for
Eudora. Free, too. Looks pretty good. Details below:


EXPOSURE Internet Marketing News

~~~ Special Announcement ~~~

Friday May 9th, 1997 - Noon PDT

"For the busy Internet Marketing Professional"


In terms of Spam (Unsolicited Bulk email advertising), you
are either part of the problem or part of the solution.

John Audette (I-Sales Digest Moderator) and myself have decided
to be part of the solution.

We have gathered from various sources, specific domains that
are known to generate bulk unsolicited email on a daily basis,
and have placed them as a clickable text file on the Web, along
with step by step instructions on how to insert this file,
"filters.pce" directly into any Eudora program so that all
email received from these domains is deposited directly into
a Spam folder or into your trash can.

As more domains are purchased by rhogue ISP's and known
spammers, we will be continually updating this file, so
all you'll have to do is change the file or refresh it
every so often. We have found that filtering these
domains allows us to get rid of 98% of all bulk unsolicited
email as it is downloaded. It is an incredible timesaver.

Bulk unsolicited email is a problem that is not likely to
go away any time soon, but we hope that this site will provide
people with the information they need to deal with this problem,
and at the same time provide those new to online marketing with
an incentive to investigate other more constructive ways to
promote their businesses online, rather than use bulk unsolicited email.

If you are a listowner, please put this information out to
your readers if you think it will assist them in their online


We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, Exposure Internet
Marketing News.
