Use Google as a spam filter

If you forward your me@mydomain.com email to your Gmail account then it will be processed by Googles spam filters. Then set up a new email account me2@mydomain.com and forward your Gmail to it.
Remove your me@mydomain.com account from your e-mail client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.) and replace it with me2@mydomain.com.
This way you get the benefit of Google's spam filters working for you. This will also give the spammers something to think about, as Google will have a great big list of spammers.

To do this you will need 2 things.
1./ An email account that you can forward
2./ A Gmail account.

Node-net are offering a simple solution whereby you can have a yourdomain.com mail server with unlimited email addresses, including domain registration fees and hosting for £50 per year.
This service is particularily suitable for small businesses with up to 40 PC's on site. For larger companies the fees would be a little higher as traffic would be higher. We will also invite you to join Gmail. If you need help in setting up then we can also do this for you for a small fee.

Nice. I use gmail as a portal but for OE, Mac Mail, and Thunderbird users this is sweet.
