-i haven't had any spam for years but but about 2 weeks ago I get about 7 per day - they all have one thing in common and that is the unsubscribe page is always the same - and yes iinet say their anti-spam is about as good as it gets but does nothing on the latest spam i get - this happened about 10 years ago and I ended up creating a new email address but now so many people/places have it it doesn't seem like thee best option

If so, stay with Thunderbird and keep training the anti spam feature - it's very effective.

Thunderbird is so much better than I'm used to - love it - has many features I wish I had before - and it knows the spam alright - fantastic................
