what you missed in the newsletter (and an update)
In each "what you missed in the newsletter" post from now on I'm just going to title it as such without the number, so I don't have to login to the system and remember which it was. 🙂
Okay so anyway I mentioned in the last newsletter that I've switched off my menga.net email to a web-based account, and explained in detail why I did it.
The update is that I've taken this one step further and done the the following:
Above is what I see in my admin panel for antispam email administration for the menga.net domain. I've officially set this to the highest possible level of antispam and additionally set it to delete any that arrives instead of marking it.
This is a big deal for me because ordinarily I just have it marked/moved. But since I've switched over all my accounts (and I mean all of them), there was no reason to mark/move them any longer.
Total number of spam I've encountered since then: One.
Just one. And the one I got was a goof (would take too long to explain).
That's a beautiful thing. I cannot tell you how long it's been since having an email account that is 99.9% spam-free.
I have been very aggressive in this move to get spam-free, and this is about as close as I'll ever get.
Yeah, I know I'll start getting spam again eventually - but hopefully not for a while.
