Just a thought:

I see an *AWFUL* lot of spam posts in newsgroups. Is there a way to filter
this out or do i have to keep highlighting them all and deleting them?

^^^^ THIS IS SPAM ^^^^

Please turn it off. Right click the AVG icon in the system tray
and select the E-mail scanner tab. Uncheck the option 'Certify
Outgoing Messages'. Apply / OK.

[snip broken sig]

Use your OE's filters.
I don't use OE but they should be under 'Tools' in the menu. Check
your 'Help' file.

Or download and install nfilter.
