I made the grave mistake of replying to an emails <to be removed from our emailing data base please click here> Bad mistake,am now paying the price as changing my email address did not stop the spam.

spam assassin is very good
To get NAV to work with both email addresses set up separate icons on your desktop (or wherever) calling SEPARATE email control files.

However, the best way to get rid of spam is to create new email addresses with combinations of letters and numbers that are not a name and are not in the dictionary as words.

On one home lottery I set up an address called "plantatree". The spam started immediately.  See why?
