Bob has expressed his frustration regarding phone security, especially landlines.

By this time I would have surrendered mine to the spammers and phishers except for purchasing a "CPR Callblocker V5000." At last count there are almost 400 numbers who will never bother me again. This has not solved the problem, but I used to get >20 calls a day and now I get two or three. Simple and cheap.

If anyone is searching for a good email server, I have settled on Thunderbird. (After a dozen less-than-great email programs...) I recommend it.

I also keep my ISP informed regarding this spam and email nonsense. I regularly send them my collection of fake email to Phishing(at)Charter.net. Your ISP might have a similar interest.

And more to the point, call your legislators, both state and federal, and let them know how you feel about 'regulatory' agencies (note the quotes) regulating consumers into helplessness instead of doing their job of regulating the utilities' ability to dump this garbage on us. Don't believe the line about comm companies being unable to stop it. They know where the spam originates; they just have no interest in stopping it, because our 'regulators' have abdicated their duties in the interest of their political bosses' greed for 'political contributions' (euphemism for bribes).
Finally, know who, and *what* you're voting for. The inevitable endgame of pure, unrestrained capitalism (supported by bought & paid-for 'regulation') is feudalism.
Sorry; rant mode off...

Another data point on phone communication and email servers...

Gmail does a better job of spam blocking than any add on I've experimented with... Tbird, outlook, yahoo, eurdora... etc.
I gave up my landline in favor of cell only.  My provider T-mobile coupled with a Samsung android phone alerts to spam calls with near 100% accuracy. It's failure mode is to mis-identify a qualified caller as spam.
My story... and it works for me.

Good point about Gmail's spam filtering. And since Gmail supports both POP and IMAP, it is perfectly reasonable to use Gmail (or G Suite) on the server side and Eudora or Thunderbird or whatever on the client side.

Charlie, thanks for saying this. Too many people I know think "private companies are good, government regulators are bad." This black and white thinking is one of the reasons we are where we are today.

Great, if you live in a major metro area. But 10 miles out of town on a 4 lane major thoroughfare, and I can get 3Mbit DSL (sometimes), and cell service in the house is a lot like a corded phone; you're 'tethered' to a location near a window or it doesn't work. Meanwhile, one of our Senators just allocated $25million in broadband grant money to a state hospital to install a replacement heliport.

We had been living in a remote fringe cell area. Unreliable voice and no data. Flat topography but areas of thick fir forest between the house and cell tower.  I purchased a SolidRF brand Cell Phone Booster.  Once I got the YAGI antenna mounted on the second floor exterior wall and correctly aimed at the cell tower we has good voice and 4G data.   I was surprised how well the system worked.

I had the same problem in my house in NH with cell service.   Usable in one upstairs bedroom.  Terrible in the rest of the house. Dropped calls and hard to understand.

I installed a "weBoost Connect 4G 470103R Indoor Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home and Office" and the cell service is great in pretty much all the house.  Not particularly cheap ($550 new or $440
refurbished) but well worth it for us.  We can actually use the phone without problems now.
