Remote host said: 550 <[email protected]***.net> recipient rejected
Giving up on 68.1.17.3.
It'* speaking using pronouns in the first-person. It told me "I've given up", and it describes 68.1.17.3 as not "liking" recipient??

Terminator 3 is right around the corner.

I get spam email crap all the time from my ISP to my outlook express. Lots of Viagara crap and Stock buys. What can get rid of that? I'm using HS cable.

I don't get it? I've seen that exact same daemon message (different addresses of course) for years. As far as I know, it'* been worded like that for at least 5 years

If you are getting your email via pop3, (as you mentioned, outlook express or some other mail client running on your PC), you'll have to have filtering software installed on your PC.

Usually the ISP provides it for free, as it'* cheaper for them to pay for anti-virus/spam protection than to field all the repair calls, or to have their servers bombarded by denial of service viruses. Some years ago the ISPs would go so far to shut off your service if they thought you had a virus. That worked out real well, as you can imagine.

If you get your email via a web browser (yahoo, MSN, etc), there is almost always a spam filter you can turn on.

I have SBC DSL, and they provide free downloadable software to protect my PC (anti virus, spam filtering, pop up blocker, parental controls), and also have spam filtering on the web mail client.

Go check the home page for your ISP. I'll bet you find a "download software" option.
