      Hi there:

      I had a great deal of trouble with spam after leaving Cadvision. I insisted
      that Telus KILL my Cadvision account. Most of my spam stopped. I'm
      suspicious that somehow the list of Cadvision customers got into the wrong
      hands.

      Since then, spam has found its way back to my PC. I have installed 'Spam
      Defector. It's helped, but doesn't catch them all. 'Mail Sword' looks
      promising, and will try it again in a week or so after they release v1.4+.
