Knowing spam update

In my first 24 hours with the service, KnowSpam has blocked 480 spam messages for me. Can I get an amen?

Not to turn this into a total infomercial, but what the heck. You can sign up now and it’s free until 1 January 2004 (and twenty bucks a year after that). Cheaper than more spam programs, and it works better too.

One caveat: It’s definitely not for beginners at the moment. For now, if you can’t tell your POP from your SMTP, have a geeky friend set it up for you. Or son. (Hi mom.) Anyway, it’s a new service, so I’m sure it’ll get easier to set up over time.
