Do I need to check gmail's spam box?

How reliable do you find Gmail's spam filtering? Do i need to check the spam folder before I (or Gmail) empty it? It seems quite good to me - I've been using it since february, and it's been months since any real mail got filtered as spam, and relatively few spam get through. But checking is getting tiresome. what is your experience? Judy

Spam checker?

A couple months ago I downloaded an application that worked with google (and maybe other search sites, I don't use them so I'm not sure) that would check sites once you had completed a search. Anyone know what I'm talking about and how to find it again? [more inside]

Snail Mail Spam, how to stop?

It seems like almost every time i open my mailbox i get this advertising mailer in there. How on earth do i go about complaining and get this crap to stop! I assume there are laws like there are spam these days, if you say "unsubscribe" they have to obey? Googling for it only came up with the link i pasted above and looking on the Kansas City Star website was no help either. Any advice?

Is my form mail script being used to send spam?

I have a website with a feedback form script. Suddenly, over the past week, I've been getting a lot of weird, spam-like mail sent to me via this script. (It doesn't actually sell products--it just contains gibberish, of the sort that might be used to confuse spam filters.) I'm more worried that my feedback form is being used to spam other people. How can I figure out if this is the case? And either way, how can I stop abuse of my feedback form? [more inside]

Setting up SPF on shared hosting

An AskMefi question today about joe-job spam has me interested in setting up a preventative SPF record for my business server, which is a hosted domain at Dreamhost. However I do all my mail through my home DSL, connecting via SMTP to my domain at Dreamhost. Is an SPF record a viable solution? Can I put in a range of my ISP's addresses to whitelist them in SPF?

Wordpress spam comments don't disappear from Recent Comments

I have a WordPress blog (linked on my profile page if that's helpful). It is set up to notify me when there are comments on postings. I've been getting spam comments and deleting them. They disappear from the post where they appeared. However, they DON'T disappear from the "recent comments" module on my homepage. This module contains a link to the spam URLs they are propagating. I know some SQL but almost no PHP. Is this a common problem? Any suggestions?

Is the domain I'm acquiring tainted by its past life as a spam source?

I've found a domain name I want to acquire from its current owner, and it looks like I may be able to do so. The IP address at which the domain resides is listed in a spam blacklist database. If I acquire the name and give it a new IP address, I assume that particular problem goes away. What's the best place, though, to check and see if the domain name itself is widely considered to be a spam source? Should I consider the IP listing to sully the domain -- am I buying a potential Superfund site? [more inside]

five-digit spam

Does anybody have any idea what's going on with this kind of comment spam? I'm getting scads of it, with no URLs but always a mention of a five-figure number. "I've managed to save up roughly $55085 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?"

How can I get spammers to stop using an email address?

This might sound like a stupid question, but I have heard of techniques that advanced users might use to foul up the spammers method of harvesting email addresses. It involves creating web pages and using bait or something, but I'm not sure how it works. And I can't concoct a google search that gets me the advice I am looking for. So webmins, how do you create a network of webpages that will have spammers getting so fed up with a specific email address that they will drop it from their list?

mac email spam outburst

A sudden increase in spam making it past my email client's filters. I'm on a Mac using "Mail" for my email program. Up until three days ago, my junk filter caught all but a couple of spam emails. Now, for some reason, about ten times more spam emails seem to be making it past my filters. Any ideas why this is or how I can get back to a better signal-to-noise ratio?

A different type of keyword spamming

I have been noticing more and more websites using Google to index their restricted content. For example, this search (top item) brings up what is supposedly a full 30 KB paper, but visiting the link we get a different page that goes to a login. Even the cache carries the false page. Are these websites abusing Google, or is Google permitting it and why? Why doesn't this stuff belong under the ads?
