So this morning I had over 2200 spam emails (From 48 hours or so?). This is just stupid. I use pine... is there anyway I can put a filter or something on it?

Wow, that's a lot of spam mail in 48 hours. I think I'd get a new e-mail account if I had to put up with that crap. I probably get 30 a day despite the "best" efforts of the spam filter.

This is my university of Maryland account. So important stuff will keep going to it and I use pine to check it. Is there a filter I can use with pine?

I had one with my thunderbird. I Think I even had one with outlook express. No pine checked account has ever been like this before though.

One of those has a lizard on it.

Who wants their car to smell like a lizard?

In fact, what does a lizard even smell like it?

I can imagine what a dead lizard would smell like.

but seriously, why doesn't UM filter spam? the faculty must be getting inundated as well

whatever we have at work has been great for the last 2 years, I get maybe one mail a week that might be considered spam, and its still at least tangentially related to work.

Maybe the faculty don't post their e-mail anywhere in verbatim, eh, JM?

What's your email address JM?

I don't think I have. I started out getting some that was definitely related to my students.

Then this last year it has started getting crazy, however, I was not using that account for much during that time.
