So why doesn't Microsoft come up with a more effective way to filter the
junk? It seems that the SPAMMERS are always the WINNERS in this poker game.
There are thousands of ligitimate adverstisers or companies nationwide, not
on our approved sender's list, that we might have an interest in viewing
their offerings when they are sent. Interestingly, such companies don't tend
to be a problem, it is the glut of pornography, pharmaceuticals, and
fraudulant offers that we would like to see effectively filtered.
