<tip type="spam">
If you're on a dial-up connection it might be worth getting a web-based 
email interface for those occasions when you get hit by a spam attack (I 
got over 1000 in one burst last night and am now receiving just over 2 
spam emails a minute).

It means you can see and kill spam having only downloaded the titles of 
the posts in your browser, rather than the entire thing to your email 

Open WebMail is one such solution:
