    I'm sick to death of my Inbox getting cluttered with rubbish SPAM.  Is there a website or email address I can forward their email addresses to that will do really nasty things back to them?

    Not really and it won't really solve anything, for the simple fact that most of the email addresses are spoofed, ours here gets spoofed a lot, there isn;t really much you can do.

    Use a good system like gmail or thunderbird and this should help

    My gmail addresses are great and I have most blocked in Outlook but it drives me crazy when I'm out of the office and they come through to the Treo.

    Stop registering on every porn site you come across and you won't have such a big problem ;)

    do an "ego" search for your email address and then ask for it to be removed from every site that it comes up.

    Remove it from here (your sites) and anywhere else, that will cut it down a little, though now it is out there it is out there.

    You would be better having gmail manage all your mail (you can have gmail grab mail from any pop3 or IMAP account and then connect the trio or have gmail forward to another address that your trio grabs from.

    That way it will be filtered at each level

    You can install spamMatters into your email client and then submit any you get. They collate all the results and where possible pursue the perpetrators. I even had them follow up a complaint I made against an Australian company that sent spam.
