You don't have to report anything which is SC held that you don't want
When I read about other mail services, such as cotse, those services
allow you to mail discriminate at the server^1 level.
Also, the blacklisting process works like this:
'Blacklisting Sender(s) is a useful tool for preventing specific
individuals, specific organizations, or entire domains from contacting
you via email. Any time you receive an email you don't want, you can
blacklist the sender or domain for the future by simply clicking a link
while the email is open in your webmail interface (i.e., when you are
looking at the message page). You can also manually edit your blacklist
to add or delete particular senders or domains. All mail from
blacklisted sources will be delivered to your Trash folder, deleted, or
rejected, at your option."
^1 Whereas most systems deliver mail to your inbox and then apply
filters, Cotse's filters are server-side, i.e., they are applied before
the mail ever gets to you. Note that you do not need to choose among
spam filtering methods: you can enable any or all of the following:
Of course, cotse is a lot of other things besides just a mail service,
so it doesn't cost $30/y, it costs about $6/mo for the whole enchilada,
but you get a lot. Oho, I see here that cotse now has an email only
account of $50/y purchasable as 6 mos. Personally if I were going to
buy cotse's email, I would buy the whole thing for about $22/y more.
