Daniel, is there something that can be done about the increase of spam in rc mail lately? I don't give this email to anybody and rarely use it, but it's getting old having to go in daily and delete all the garbage. It has always been great at not letting it through in the past. Has something changed?

No, nothing has changed.

Be sure to enable spam filtering (Email -> Options -> Spam detection).

Kelly... You have it listed on your rc.com profile page, and there are web crawlers that only look for email addies just for SPAM.

Use "[at]" or "(at)" instead of "@"...
Look at mine for an example of what I'm talking about.


I've pretty much had to abandon my rc.com email addy because of this, as I never knew. I have my other email listed on my profile page, as well as many othyer pages, all listed with "[at]" and not 1 single spam in 3 years so far.

All is GREAT! Have you seen the climbing room we just built at our new house? If not, there's a thread in sCummunity that has pics: "Under Construction"... Karen and the kids love it.

Will tell Karen you said "hi".
