Spam Spam Spam Spam

Bruce Elgort left a comment on my article about spam saying that he feels spam should be fought at the server side…

Not everybody has the ability to do server side anti-spam.  In a closed environment the server might not have access to look up a remote black list and there is no way that an administrator would be able to create server rules that could catch all spam so the end user should always have some way of filtering out their email.

Using something simple like giving the user the ability to block addresses or domains with the ability to filter the mail to a folder or even auto delete the message gives the user the control they need.

Nothing will ever get rid of spam. Only a combination of Server Side and Client Side solutions will help reduce the problem…
