There was a time when it was a joy to open up your email program and see which friends had sent you a message. Now it's a task many of us dread, thanks to the rise of spam. These junk emails now account for over 50% of email traffic. There are a number of different ways that you can protect yourself including using anti-spam software. One of the free programs that are available is called Cactus Spam Filter.

Cactus Spam Filter is an easy to use program that can help you cut down on the amount of spam that clutters your inbox. It works by identifying messages that it thinks are spam and changing the email subject line. It tags the subject with a message *Cactus Spam*. This tag can be changed if you want.

You then need to set up a spam folder where all the spam messages will be delivered. It is very simple to set up a rule in your email software so that the tagged messages are automatically sent to this folder. Just set it up so that any messages containing “cactus spam" in the heading are sent to this folder.

As you use the software, it ‘learns’ the emails that you mark as spam and it becomes more proficient at recognizing junk emails. If you already have a folder of garbage emails then you can immediately start training the software, so this learning process will be even quicker.

If you want to stop junk emails with the minimum of fuss, then Cactus Spam Filter is a product that you should consider. As it is free, you can try it and if it doesn't perform to your liking then you can easily uninstall it. Other free alternatives to Cactus include Mailwasher and Cloudmark Desktop (free trial). If you prefer an all-in-one solution, there are ant-ispam components in Norton and McAfee Internet Security Suites.
