You need a Spam trap.

One can be easily made from 16 gauge wire.

Use Google to find out how.

One way is to keep your email address out of newsgroups. For instance
if you were selling a horse or a pony or something, you'd publish your
email address as http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed) or something similar
with an explanatory note saying to remove the ZZZZZ part when replying.
Human beings will know what to do, but email harvesting programs will
end up with an invalid address.

See http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=spamblock.

Also do a google search for munge or munging.

This is just one tactic to minimise spam from one source. Perhaps while
searching on google, you could also search for "how do i stop spam"
(including the quotes).

turning OFF the receipt request "feature" should also help although it may
be too late now if OE has already auto replied to all the spam she's
already got and verified that her address is in fact real

OE has very weak message rules, totally inadequate for anything but the
simplest of spam filtering, such as the segregation of all of the mail
which isn't addressed to you in the To and whitelisting your friends and
mailing lists.

Ideally, you should not be having to read your spam subjects to identify
goodmail from spam and you certainly should not be opening and reading
and believing and responding to any of your spam.

To that end, all of your spam should be 'pre-identified' before it
arrives in any of your OE mail folders.

An excellent tool for doing this is SpamPal, which can be configured
mainly with numerous blocklists and also additional plugins. SP stands
between your provider's mailserver and OE, and tags all of the spam with
a label which OE can message rule into its own spam folder. SP has
powerful features for white and blacklisting as well. Then only
goodmail will be in the OE Inbox.

SpamPal's ability to identify spam is very very powerful. Putting your
eyeballs on spamsubjects and spamfroms found in your goodmail inbox is a
very very poor way to 'filter' spam.

The SP tagged and OE tag-segregated spam can be deleted or reported.
The advantage of spam reporting is that it contributes to the
effectiveness of your own filtering in addition to aiding the filtering
of others.

matches up against other popular anti-spam programs, check out this
comparison chart.

As well as the other suggestions Mailwasher helps by letting you see the
headers on the server before downloading them.
The free version only works with one a/c, for more you need to get the Pro
version.

Talk to your ISP, in case they have a free Spam filtering service. Many of
them now do. Some do it at their mail server level, while others will give
you a free software to install. The one that I am with does it for free on
their server. I only had to use a name and password to set it up, and it
works great.

If you cannot get it from your ISP, then you can download and install one
yourself. The ones that you pay for are usually better and have more
features than the free ones. Take care that some of the free ones may also
come with some Spyware inside of it If you do a Google search for
antispyware, or Spam filtering software, I am sure you will find many.

One free one that I would trust is from Mozilla

I used to use http://www.spamihilator.com/ which I found very effective. The
reason I don't use it now, is that I've learnt to be more guarded with my
new email address, and have several junk addresses that I use for website
access and the like.

Also my new ISP blocks the most obvious spam at the server.

Dont publish your real email address on websites, your webpage, or
USEnet. Use a disposable email address for such. They are free at
mail.yahoo.com
