Mail...I like it...can't wait until Leopard is released to get easy to use HTML templates. This is not my point.

I am curious about SPAM. Is there some way that Mail can have a button...like a Junk button for instance that tells not only my system that a particular e-mail is junk BUT will go out to other Mail users and tell their system that an offending e-mail is Junk too.

There could be some sort of algorhythm/classification system so that an e-mail could have the chance to defend itself based on content. But an offending e-mail that we all tag as Junk would be automatically removed from all of our inboxes without us even seeing the **** thing.

I would love this. If I see another viagra ad, lottery winning, bank scheme, ***** enlargement, etc. e-Mail...I think I'll just forget e-mail altogether and go back to snail mail. SPAM e-Mail exhausts, enfuriates and takes up bandwith. Please, Apple engineers...let Mail users work together to eliminate SPAM. Maybe a few of us will have to read these things...but together we can eliminate much of this stuff.

Is this possible? Or better yet...is it available now?

Peace to you all.
Joseph
