Have a look at Tucows, there should be a free blocking programme there.

this is not the recommended method, but it makes me feel good.

i send one reply (not a great idea) telling them to remove me. no swearing, just short and sweet. if i get another spam from the same place, i go to and copy / paste the picture of a man with an axe in his head. this is better than attaching because they get no option with the copy / paste but to see the picture. i then include text telling them to remove me or the next picture will be worse...and i can find pictures that would make most people vomit

like i said, not the best method, but i like it

if using outlook go to tools/rules

create a rule with the info of smavidd@

leave the domain part off.

Set it to send those to the trash automatically or even perm delete.

There is a site called that runs a program called ad-aware. Its free and it searches for the cookies that impregnate you server and deletes them

I found them after I was getting spammed by looking at some US sites for American Muscle cars ( my wife thought I was looking for porn)

It works very well and stops problems for ever.
