Well, there’s a couple main ways of dealing with Spam dilemma. The main one, and most easy, is to just delete messages or empty your folder (after moving desired messages to another folder) straight off server without downloading or ‘looking’ at messages. This gives ‘evil’ sender knowledge that you’re not reading mail and therefore traffic you receive goes down dramatically.
Another way to block Spam is to use software like Magic Mail Monitor (http://mmm3.sourceforge.net/) or Mailwasher (http://www.mailwasher.net/), which work well at destroying unwanted, pink, tasteless, unworldly email meat by showing you mail straight from server without downloading it.
So, show criminals you’re aware and not ignorant and take first steps to bringing Spam Empire down. Protect yourself and eventually Spam will go where all filth is destined, into trash.
