Almost there...

Thursday, January 03, 2002

I couldn't believe my eyes this morning when I logged into my webmail box. There were 1128 messages in my junkmail folder, all from the same dude, advertising a 5.7% rate on refinancing a mortgage. I immediately deleted my junk mail folder, and by the time I had read through the ten emails in my inbox, there were another 64 copies of the same message. Yipes! I immediately emptied the folder again, but then I thought to block the sender, and found that the block function on hotmail has improved. It now allows you to not merely block one address at a particular domain name, but to block anything coming from that domain. Having collected another 28 copies of the message in the time it took me to block the sender, I emptied my junk mail folder one more time, and then it was over. Now my junk mail folder has a nice sensible three items in it. Phew!
