This morning I signed up for the 30-day free trial at Spam Arrest. I was a little excited to see how difficult it was to set up everything. I spent about 5 minutes to protect two of my email accounts. It was really easy, I am not sure it could be any easier. It seemed that everything was going exactly as planned, until I stumbled upon a little problem.
If you are going to try Spam Arrest, don’t do the same mistake as I did.
Remember to add all or most of your contacts first, before you protect your email accounts. You can import your address book as well. I protected my two email accounts first, and didn’t think of doing it the opposite way. So, after a few minutes I saw that I had sent two verification emails to my host (opened up a support ticket) and to a few others as well (for instance Amazon.com). This was a mistake on my part, and I hope that they will forgive me and not blacklist me or something.
But overall, I think Spam Arrest works very well (so far) and it was very easy to set up everything. I tried to protect my gmail account as well, but I didn’t manage to do that on my first attempt. Not sure what I did wrong, but I will try it again tomorrow.
