Subject: RE: Help: AOL, email,porn
If Claire is worried about her kids seeing dirty messages, she should make sure the parental controls are set properly for her children's screen names. That should filter out most of the unpleasantness. I have AOL (as does half the globe and they are usually all logged in when I want to be but that's a different story) and only have encountered such unwanted e-mail after I ordered on-line (no, I didn't order porno stuff!). I'm assuming my mailing information was sold to some junk e-mail distributor. I really haven't spent the time looking under the controls but I would guess Claire could set certain mail types to automatically be sent to her recycle bin so they won't be in her new messages folder.
