Free Spam Blockers

Remember when spam was just another horrible thing you would never eat? And then you grew up a little and spam became the lyrics to a great Monty Python song. And now spam is something to avoid at all costs. Or, in the case of free spam blockers, at no cost at all. Everything is better when itís free, right? Such is the case with blocking out annoying spam from your email account, too. Free spam blockers are popping up all over the internet. Kind of ironic, isnít it, that some pop-up ads are advertising spam blocking technology.

The problem with spam isnít really the content, of course, itís the time spent winnowing through all those e-mails in search of the ones that really contain useful information or are from people with whom you want to contact. The best free spam blockers in the world are not only free, but donít take up any space on your computer. Yes, Iím talking about being very careful to whom you give your e-mail address. The plain simple truth is that any time you fill out a form that asks for your e-mail address, you are just asking for spam. Maybe the site where you filled out the form sold your address to mass marketers and maybe they didnít, but chances are if you have ever given your e-mail address to a company rather than an individual, you received spam because of it.

And if youíre like most people doing business on the internet, youíre spending anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour and a half just checking your e-mail every day. You donít have time to wade through the spam pool. Thatís why getting yourself one of the reliable free spam blockers out there is so important. You can almost instantly tell when youíve come across one of these free spam blockers because of their oh-so-clever name. For instance, Spamhilator, SpamButcher, or SpamKiller. And you want to know a secret? They are almost all exactly alike. Oh sure, there are little differences that may mean a lot to you personally, but frankly it doesnít matter. The best thing you can do is download them as a trial versionóand with so many on the market offering trial versions, it makes no sense to ever download any of the free spam blockers that donít offer trial versionsóand check them out to make sure they do what they promise. And if they do what they promise, do they do it with a minimum amount of fuss and muss and maintenance on you part. The key to using free spam blockers is maintenance.

You got one in the first place to give yourself more time to do what you need to do. So why would you want to use a spam blocker is high maintenance itself? Go through all the free spam blockers that interest you and then narrow them down until you find the one that works completely in the background without throwing out stuff you really need and that doesnít require you to keep checking up on it. Thatís the one you want.
