- We love SpamArrest. After unsuccessfully trying to fight the battle against spam (junk email) with a couple of top-notch programs, we decided to try SpamArrest, and we're thrilled to say it's actually won the war. Boy, has our email been quiet! When people send us an email message, they receive an email message in return that asks them to click a link to register themselves (a one-time operation) as someone who can send us messages. Spammers, of course, won't bother to do this, which basically means—that's right—no more spam! It's easy to preregister family, friends, associates, and email newsletters. The completely online program (no software involved) provides complete control over how spam is handled, and it's very easy to use. If you'd like to know more, click here.
