If you, like me, run Windoze, the you will have access to "Tiny Personal
Firewall VERSION TWO" - with this personal firewall you can configure it
such that Eudora/Oulook/whatever will only talk to ports 25 & 110, in fact,
I've even screwed mine down to IP addresses too - stops all that spam

switch off her TV, so instead she complained about the programs that she
chose to watch! There are some truly strange people out there...
