    Default Spam, Spam and more Spam >you should not use the challange feature in ZA

    I have started to get a large amount of spam even though I have a current and updated version of Zone Alarm. I set the challenge filter to highest and took everyone out of my allowed. But when I do a test email to myself from a hotmail account I have it just allows it through to the inbox and the challenge email does not go out but says that it cannot go because one of the recipients "m" wont allow. ??? What is happening?
    Thanks for any help.


    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!IMO you should not use the challange feature in ZA, it will simply confim the spammer that your e-mail is valid with the end result of more and more spam directed to you...Cheers,Fax

    OK, I only put it on after heaps of spam, I have not d/l emails since turning it on with the exception of the test email, so it could not be because of this.
    Some of this spam has a small blue down arrow one the far left, where the attachment icon paperclip can be when an attachment is present. I never open these emails I delete them, then delete them from the deleted folder.
    When I turned my computer on today, the Zone alarm was turned off? It always comes on at start up but I had to go in ant turn it on?

    Sorry for the double post, I see with some research this is a new? feature of outlook. The blue arrow that is. But why is Zone alarm not filtering out these emails?
