There are a lot of products out there that will view and filter your email based on rules that you set up. First of all, Outlook Express is not a good choice of email client, as it has limited abilities. You should upgrade your email client to the full, and current version of Outlook, at least Outlook 2003, if you are comfortable with the Microsoft products.
You will be able to do more filtering that way. However, you will still receive a lot of spam. If you can set up a rule that blocks all email that originates in China, you will find that you have blocked a lot of it. Spam is a serious, ongoing and growing problem that has no easy solution. However, if you can block those portions of the world that you do not receive email from, then you can get a good handle on it. You would still be able to communicate with this list.

I have two e-mail ids. The first one, parmarch at sancharnet.in is being used for the past several years. I do not like to change it as a lot of my contacts have this id only.
But now more than half the mails I receive on this id are about Viagra, cialis, slimming solutions and similar stuff. I tried to use the "block sender" utility of Outlook Express but it did not help.
Can someone suggest me a solution for this problem?
