How can I eliminate Spam?

Question

Your suggestion to install CLOUDMARK to help eliminate the spam was a bummer!

It slowed the operation of MS Outlook and then caused several problems. I had to uninstall the product and delate every trace of the program I knew about before Outlook would operate correctely-not hang up!
