The Barnes & Noble Review
Here’s a 12-step plan for putting you back in charge of your own email -- not all those faceless scammers, phishers, and virus artists who’ve been driving you nuts.

Jeff Duntemann starts by helping you come up with new strategies for working with email that fit you personally. (For instance, which email software should you use? Are some addresses more spam-resistant?) Then, it’s on to systematically cleaning out spam and keeping it from collecting; and using technology to protect you 24x7.

Along the way, Duntemann points you to plenty of great tools, some of them entirely free. Another nice touch: a chart offering practical priorities for degunking your email, even if you only have a few spare minutes. Bill Camarda, from the December 2004 Read Only
