it happens since i moved to dreamhost.. the number of spam emails is about 7x greater than before. with my previous host, i was under cPanel, and they had a very neat antispam filter. Any chance of having something similar here? i care about that e-mail address and don't want to change it
Spam filtering is not so hot here. You have a few choices:1) Your own SpamAssassin installation (difficult)http://wiki.dreamhost.com/SpamAssassin
2) Double-pass spam filtering (easier)http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Double-Pass_Spam_Filtering_with_Gmail
3) Tighten up your SpamAssassin settings (easiest)http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Junk_Mail
Personally, I tried spam assassin and had okay results, but I decided to centralize my various email addresses using gmail (it can check other email accounts for you), and its spam handling is very good.
Read my blog. You know you want to...
workin pretty good so far the gmail double pass filter
