Newsgroup Spam messages

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Jeffrey Lennon, Jul 10, 2004.

  1. 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.

    I use whatever little I have left of my brain to do this.
