>> The only practical way is to use the filtering capability of
your email software to automagically transfer any messages from him, or
any other spammer, into the trash where you don't even have to look at it.
I routinely set up filters for "XXX" and "Make Money Fast". <<
I believe that both Compuserve and AOL have e-mail addresses to which you
can forward spam, and then they try to filter e-mail from that address for
the whole system. The address at Compuserve is firstname.lastname@example.org. I
don't recall what the address is at AOL. I think its something like
email@example.com. Maybe someone else on the list can provide that address.
