Increase of spam

Hello All,

For quite a while I have managed to keep a lid on spam where that my peak of 
spam would be approximately 2 or 3 per day.  There would be the rarity that 
I would receive 5 of them.

Part of this is that I ensure to all my friends never to send me those 
"joke" e-mails where they automatically forward them to everyone that is in 
their address book into their "To:" box.  This position has been for a 
number of years.  You might can say that I am rather "authoritive" about 
this procedure.

Putting all this aside, Microsoft Outlook 2007 has done a great deal in 
quickly diverting those spam into their "Junk Mail" folder.  A folder I 
really like in order to stop the potential of what's in those e-mails.  Also 
my updates have been as recent as 14th November and again the 19th bearing 
that I had to reinstall the operating system from another issue (which I 
founf out later that I need not do this).

The question to all would be that are you expereincing an major influx of 
spam mail that is also bypassing the junk mail folder of Outlook?  I am now 
receiving approximately 10 to 12 e-mails a day which is rather concerning 
despite my facsistic style in e-mail address security.  This would be 
approximately 3-weeks this wave has begun.

Kindest Regards

Spam does come in waves, generally speaking  (to continue the analogy), the 
tide is ever-increasing.   I would prefer to filter on the server, rather 
than download and then filter.

Options.

Send all email to a server based spam filtering service
Send all email to a google mail account - which does include excellent spam 
filtering
One of my domain hosting company has implemented "greylisting"- which has 
massively reduced the amount of spam received but does have some 
disadvantages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greylisting)

The "Advertisements/Sponsorship Links" Spam Thing
I should have read this board before buying Money 2006. After reading some messages (and after my own failed attempts), I understood that the spam/advertisements in Money, particulary those on the investment page, can't be turned off. Of course, I will chalk up this spamware as a loss, as I would never use a money management product that impregnates my investing experience with BS advertisement noise. It's beyond insulting. Question. Are there any full-bodied financial software packages available -- particulary ones with strong investment features -- that don't piss ...

Increase size of pie chart within control?
Is there a way to increase the size of a pie chart within its control? I have a limited amount of space in which to display the chart, so the overall size of the control is restricted.

Drivers for percentage increase

can I increase excel column numbers to more than 256?
I am trying to analyse tables including more than 256 variables. I cannot transpose them into rows because the program i am using in association with excel (xlstat) takes the columns as the variables. Is there a way to increase the number of the columns?? or is it a fixed specification of the excel worksheet? thank for any help! Yes, it is fixed - you cannot increase the number of columns. You can, of course, split your data up into chunks of 250 columns - the first block of data on row 1, for example, then the next set starting on another row etc. Pete ...

Extra line of defence against spam (Exchange 2000)
