I have been using Eudora Pro for many years. (currently 5.1.1) Blocking spam using the filter doesnt seem to work or probably I'm not doing it correctly. Any suggestions to get rid of the 30-40 spams I get a day will be most appreciated.

Or when you subscribe to web site, don't agree to receive stuff from third parties....... The only time I get truckloads of spam is when I tick the box - and some sites on-sell your information

are they coming from one address?
that's pretty much swat you need to block spam, is to block known spammers addresses. The problems there is that spammers tend to create random sender addresses, and blocking this will block out legitimate mail from people whose addresses you haven't met...
there is a whole FAQ on it HERE (http://pressf1.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=21706)

remember NEVER reply, it only confirms that you exsist
for more advise, follow the link!

IF we all put our collective cosmic thoughts together for a better world, and think vivid thoughts really hard, maybe we can make spammers heads explode, thus stopping this evil at the sours.

Thanks to everybody who suggested mailwasher. It has cut the spam down to a dribble and I've only had it installed a few days. I've told a number of friends who had the same problem - good on you Nick.

Another example of absolute bollocks from Mr Wilson

Viking.. Come on Mate loosen up. I am not a religious person, but if we could band together a few collective thoughts we might get back the NZ the way it used to be. Actually I thought that para quite funny. I suppose I will get growled by the "thought police" again now for being "off topic" & voicing an opinion. Still cheerful Poppa John. :D :D

Yes - Use SPAMNIX
It is designed fro Eudora and will cost 30$ USD but its money VERY well spent
