DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

05/29/05: How to block mail from an ex

Tech Support Pits:
From Glennis=== Dear Webby, I can't change my email address because of my business, but I need to block mail from my ex. His mails are polite and friendly, not of a harassing type, but I just don't want any more mail from him. He forges different sender addresses, so it's not easy to avoid his mails. What do you suggest? Glennis Dear Glennis Just get MailWasher, the Pro version, from the left side menu. Then look at a few of his mails and find something that is common to all of them. With MailWasher you can easily peek at the hidden header stuff, and even if you don't find anything common in the message body, you will easily find something that shows up in all of his letters, but not in legitimate mail. Then make a filter that is triggered by that. Making filters is childishly easy with MailWasher Pro, even fun. Set the filter to delete his mails automatically, without showing them, and you won't ever see them again. With the filters you can have them triggered by many different items. If any of ten different traps recognizes him, his mail gets nuked. To fine tune your filter, you can set it so that it just flags his mail for deletion. That way, if somebody else also uses one of the trigger phrases, you can modify the filter. Have FUN! Dear Webby
