I want to cut down on the chance of getting spam from a form on a website I maintain, so I want to incorporate the kind of thing I have seen on other websites where you have to enter a set of jumbled letters or numbers in order to submit a form or buy a ticket. What is that called? How is it set up and how does it work? [more inside]

Two Part Question:
1) Do some educational institutions flag ALL .com e-mails as spam?
2) Is it unseemly for a for-profit company to use the non-restricted .org TLD for its e-mail addresses? [more inside]

I'm running a PhPBB forum. Spammers have found it. Mysterious strangers selling vigorous blue pills popped up from nowhere.
Now I need to build something that will prevent spammers from polluting it. Is there a silver bullet that prevents all spammers from ever posting on PHPBB forums ? (I know, but I'm an eternal optimistic).
Any antispam mods that has been successfullyt tested someone would like to recommend ?
Thanks in adavance.

I'm using Outlook 2000 and the built-in"keyword" spam filtering is a joke. ("viagra" is on my list, and a search of my inbox finds 29 emails with that word, even after running the rule manually.) What are people using on the client side to filter spam with Outlook (using POP, not Exchange)? No challenge/response, please, as this is used for business. The free-er the better.

SpamFilter (literally): When setting up an email account for my own domain, I'm setting up a catch-all for any spam or emails that might go to *@mydomain.com. Is it a bad idea, especially with spammers, to have an automated response be sent back saying that address does not exist? [MoIn] [more inside]

I want to report a spammer, but I am having trouble figuring out where to direct my complaint. I have googled this and looked at a lot of anti-spam sites, but I still have questions. [more inside] [more inside]
