    A man nicknamed the "spam king" for allegedly sending out millions of junk e-mails has been arrested in the US.
    Robert Soloway, 27, was arrested in Seattle, Washington, after being indicted on charges of mail fraud, identity theft and money laundering.

    Mr Soloway has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

    Prosecutors say Mr Soloway became one of the world's biggest spammers, using computers secretly infected with orders to send out millions of his e-mails.

    Such computers are known as "zombies" because their owners often have no idea they have been hijacked for another purpose.

    Yes, sadly this will not stop the spam flow. But is there any way of doing so? I really do not trust the filters are doing a good job, too many mistakes on their accounts.
