    Unplug your computers and don't check email is the easy answer. Try black listing any mail with the subject in it through the trapper or your Outlook.

    Go on, have a guess
    You could also look at installing something like MailScanner and use it with SpamAssassin with bayes enabled and a good set of RBLs together with checksum services like DCC and Vipuls Razor - this combination cuts out around 98+% os spam for us.

    Which RBLs do you find safe to use with the least false positives?
