Anti Spam Policy
Charming Web hates spam! We are committed to eliminating spam from our networks and the Internet forever. We support anti-spam legislation and commend our lawmakers for taking action on this very serious matter.
Our servers are locked down with every anti-spam tactic we know of and we try and stay abreast of developments concerning spam elimination. Unfortunately spammers are very resourceful and resort to almost anything to continue their spamming. They figure out ways around our tactics.

What is spam? From http://spam.abuse.net:
Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send—most of the costs are paid for by the recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender.
There are two main types of spam, and they have different effects on Internet users. Cancelable Usenet spam is a single message sent to 20 or more Usenet newsgroups.
Email spam targets individual users with direct mail messages. Email spam lists are often created by scanning Usenet postings, stealing Internet mailing lists, or searching the Web for addresses. Email spams typically cost users money out-of-pocket to receive. Many people—those with measured phone service—read or receive their mail while the meter is running, so to speak. Spam costs them additional money. On top of that, it costs money for ISPs and online services to transmit spam, and these costs are transmitted directly to subscribers.
In essence, spam is the transmission of unsolicited bulk email (UBE), unsolicited commercial email (UCE), or commercial postings to inappropriate newsgroups.

Fire Trust Mail Washer Pro I have been using this software for eight months and it has reduced the amount of spam coming into my inbox by 60%. I love it! It is easy to use, easy to configure and best of all; the spam never gets to your computer! You preview the mail before it reaches your inbox, add senders to your blacklist, delete them and then MWP bounces the email back to the spammer with a header saying your address does not exist.
