When I got my Android phone it was obvious to me that I needed something to handle the hundreds of spam messages that were making finding important emails in my smart phone inbox an exercise in futility. I went to the Android Marketplace and signed up for SpamDrain. Nothing to download or install, they just grab you email messages and filter out the spam before it drops into your inbox. What I didn’t realize was that it would also keep spam off my Outlook inbox on my laptop.
I get a once a day email that summarizes the spam that was blocked, and allows me to release newsletters and other mail that was trapped by mistake. And there aren’t too many of those, either.
This product beat my expectations, and works better than Outlook’s built-in spam filter, or the spam filtering I was supposed to be getting from my AVG subscription. At $15 a year, it is certainly affordable. Go to SpamDrain to sign up.Share
