After having gradually drowned in spam, I spent much of the last week configuring a new installation of SpamAssassin on my mail server, and, well, it’s awesome! My entire email experience has changed, and now I see no more than a half-dozen spam messages in a day. Last week, by comparison, I was getting upwards of 300 spam messages daily, and for the most appalling and stupid of stuff. Good Riddance!
If you have your own mail server, or even if you have access to one that someone else is running, I strongly encourage you to check out SpamAssassin and learn how to write your own local.cf file so you can have the filtering tailored to your own inflow. It’ll change your world. 🙂
