    Hi - I have enjoyed the protection of the Demon SPAM filter from when
    they started and received 5 to 10 emails per day. Today I have had about
    a 1000, and the help desk says they cannot help me. They sent me to site
    to get a "free" mailwasher, which isn't after 30 days. Anyway I prefer
    to use SMPT if I can.
    "They" have my email address but 99% of the stuff has the wrong name
    before the @ symbol. Is there any way I can set up Turnpike 6.04 to
    filter out these ?
    Thanks
