- Aug 16 5:16 PMMailsword is a completely new way of stopping spam. It sends a message
to whoever sent you a message and asks them to type a 4 didgit code in
their return message, then it allows them to send all messages to you.
I discovered that Doug had it when I sent the last message about how
to update MS products to prevent the latest worm. I guess Doug has a
different address for me, as I use several, or he failed to enter his
white list properly.
Doug should get two copies of this, as I have added his name to the out
box and I know he can receive mail from this address.(just in case
compsigtips isn't on his white list). It took over 12 hours for
Mailsword to send me the message requesting I reply in person, so it
does slow down mail from 'new' senders to Doug.
