Yes You are quite right Les. I would rather put up with a few unsolicited emails which can be removed and cancelled quite easily rather than miss an important missive that the spam filtre would block.
Many thanks for your thoughts on the subject.

I agree entirely. Spam is a minor irritant that has been elevated to equal status with viruses and other security matters. We wouldn't trust our local postal sorting office to decide what physical mail gets delivered so why trust our ISP?

By their very nature these filters "try to be clever", something I detest in computing. It brings to mind the farce many years ago when AOL wouldn't allow new customers to register in the town of Scunthorpe (though it probably did them a favour).
