I have found that unsubscribing works pretty well in most cases. It hasn't eliminated all of my spam, but it has certainly cut down a large amount of it. I also have an email account that I only use rarely and am very select on who I give it out to, and that account never gets spam. Then I also have a more general email address that I use more frequently and casually so that if I do get spam it's more likely to go into that account rather than my main account.

Like others above, I receive very little spam,that which gets through is obvious and I mark as junk then delete.
Not sure if it's relevant but I use Hotmail and my ISP is BT.

I hate captcha Wink I'm never sure what I write is the same what I see... A photographer with some colour-blindness? Why not - that's why I like b&w Wink
Long time ago I heard about a nice method - fake message about not delivered email because there is no address. Spambots deleted the addresses which didn't exist Smile
A few years ago I had a great antispam address. "nomail@....." I used this mail for 5 or 6 years and I never had spam Smile Only one time somebody sent me "test" messages and was in big shock, when "this fake-for-sure" email answered Wink

The sad thing is that this is a very big market, it seems impossible to succesfully fight spam.... Not long, I hope.
