    Hi all,

    I've been with BT Openworld for years and suffered moderately with spam
    (maybe 30 per day) most of which were filtered out by BTO's spam filter and
    Cloudmark's Spamnet took care of the rest

    However, since my "upgrade" to BT Yahoo, my spam has increased ten-fold to
    the extent that around 200 a day are being captured by BT Yahoo's spam
    filtering and another 100 by Spamnet.

    I have even set up Addressguard "spoof" email addresses to try to narrow
    down the problem

    This wouldn't be too burdensome, but for the fact that BT Yahoo's filter
    sucks!! It regularly marks personal mail as spam...even though I have
    classified it as "Not Spam" on numerous occasions, meaning that I have zero
    confidence in just deleting the spam and have to go through it all looking
    for valid messages!

    Has anybody else noticed an increase on spam since the change to BT Yahoo??

    Lastly, I am thinking of changing suppliers. Are there any out there that
    offer spam filtering or if not can anyone suggest any third party email

  2. Yahoo??

    One look at the BTYahoo newsgroups (http://snipurl.com/67rh) answers that.
