    Hi,

    Conventional advice has always been never to reply to spam messages or click
    on the "unsubscribe" links because that just tells them the email address is
    valid and will make the problem worse.

    I recently, more and more spam messages are coming with unsubscribe links at
    the bottom. Many seem to contain reasonable sounding company names and
    postal address, and often state they are in accordance with this or that
    regulations, but obviously I have no way of verifying this.

    Do you ever try to unsubscribe? Do you always try to unsubscribe? Have you
    noticed any difference?

    Andy
