I think they are all full of spam. I use bellsouth/at&t, and I see spam. Probably a filter you set.

Could be a filter Earthlink set that ATT doesn't use. Fortunately, you can set your own filters, I have a bunch of folks in killfiles. Some for spam, some 'cause they're idjits :)

Yeah, I know that I will have to start using them. Att does its best to also have yahoo take over your system. Almost like being on aol. Least ways now I am getting the messages here but unfortunally I'm hung with the news groups out of news.snet.sbcglobal.net. Funny thing is that I can get news from newsgroups.bellsouth.net but can't post cause I took the save money package and ordered online. I'm ok now that I can still read this group and sometimes post. I live out where they ship in the sunshine in a truck and earthlink's 1.5Mbps was all they could offer. Now that I switched I get 3Mbps/384Kbps for less! Sorry about the off topic but it scared the poo out of me when I saw all the spam!!! I'm 59 disabled and have an 02 Ram 1500 series and have an a/c problem that I posted last year and you guys treated me good and I also thank Tom for the private email. I still haven't fixed it yet!! Lol. I will post more on this later. I learned a lot here.

You do have another option - use a third party service. I use news.individual.net, it's pretty reasonable at 13 euro a year (they're out of Germany, I think). Been using them a couple of years now, don't even bother with looking at my next ISP's news service when I move, now.
