    Spam asking for passwords etc for Paradise email accounts is coming
    through thick and fast nowadays. What is surprising about this is that
    TelstraClear seem to be unable to tweak their spam filters to deal
    with it. Presumably enough users respond positively to it to make it
    worthwhile sending out such spam.

    I'm a paradise user, and I'm not seeing any of it.
    The only spam in the spam filter is 2 fake rolex.
    I never use my paradise email address for registrations.

    Unfortunarely I have been using mine for some years and it has
    'leaked'. But it still seems strange that while TelstraClear
    successfully hooks most spam into the webmail spam flder, theseones
    slip through.

    I would think it likely that: • the spam filter is outsourced; • TelstraClear
    are not the ones tweaking their spam filters; • whoever the spam filter is
    outsourced to is supporting a number of clients, of which the "Paradise"
    brand is only a small proportion.
