    Exclamation spam killer

    I am new to the Linux engine I picked Ubuntu after seeing it on a mates PC.
    I have installed it on my Laptop with no problems.
    All is working well BUT I do get some spam emails.
    Is there any free spam stoppers/killer software I can install.
    And how easy is it to install having not installed anything as yet.

    very great full for any help

    go into synaptic package manager and download SPAMASSASSIN. I use evolution, in the preferences, you should see where you can specify spamassassin as your filter for junk.
    Before Executing commands, understand WHAT you are doing and WHY YOU WOULD WANT TO DO THAT. Some Commands can be VERY dangerous if you are uninformed!
