Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of spam and would like to know how do deal with eliminating it in advance of its arrival.

Any suggestions out there?

What email do you have? And we are talking about email, right? If someone is mailing you the “meat product” on a regular basis, that’s really a totally different issue.

I use Gmail, which keeps spam in a separate folder. It still arrives, but gets automatically filed so I never have to look at it. One or two messages every few months will slip through, but I can deal with that.
I’ve also only had one “not-spam” message end up in there by accident, over the 4 years or so that I’ve been using Gmail.

I have more than one email account. One personal, one business/family and one solely for commercial purposes. The commercial one is what I use whenever I’m “required” to provide an email address to a business or website and it fills with spam on a regular basis. The personal accounts stay clean.

when u see spam all you have to report the spammer to the provider, preferably by phone so you can give them a piece of your mind! :P
