We use AT&T at work and some users get 500 unwanted emails a day. I use
Verizon DSL at home and I've never even received one unsolicited email. At
least for now, Verizon is doing a good job and AT&T is the worst.

Hi Terry,

Create filters to automatically delete it, or use "block senders". Once they
have your email address, most will ignore requests to remove it from their
lists.

Have you ever heard of spam? You are getting it. You can get a handle on it
with a program like MailWasher.

Might be easier for you to call your ISP too see if you can have more then
one email address, if so then set up a new email and delete the old one,
pass this new email to trusted friends only, if you want to use an email
address for subscriptions on the web or even for newsgroups try creating one
from Hotmail or Yahoo that way any junk or spam will be filtered out by MSN
and Yahoo.

Luck

Well, it certainly won't execute any code, and I doubt that it would
trigger a read-receipt, but I've not tested that - I never allow
read-receipts to be sent.

only 30?? try 150 a day and you should start to worry.

Try Mailwasher. It's not a full featured mail reader, but does help to
filter out the spam from the real email using rules, and 'friends list" and
"blacklist".

www.mailwasher.net.

or try blocking the sender using the method specific to your mail reader.

There would be other spam blockers around - Norton have such a product.
Else search on Google.

Until MW removes the abominable "fake bounce" feature as a user option, it
is a flawed product.

That is an extremely bad suggestion -- Unless you own NOSPAMisp.com, you
don't have authorization to use that domain.

If you want to obfusiticate your email address, add a .invalid TLD to
make sure that your spam doesn't get addressed to someone else.

In the last 15 days we've rejected 8382 of 12006 connections, and of the
ones that were not rejected, 60% were marked/processed as spam.

30 is almost nothing in the grand scheme.

Dont give out your real email address on websites or anyplace but your
friends. Use a disposable email address for such. They are free. When
they get polluted, diss them.

Block the sender by highlighting the email, not opening it. Then click on the
Message box up in the title bar. A dropdown will come down and you'll see a
"block sender" option. Click on that...then it will be all future ones from
that person will be blocked. It also deletes the email but sends it to your
"deleted" email box. Open the "deleted" folder highlight the email...hold the
shift key and then hit the delete key and you'll get a dialog box asking you
if you really want to delete it. Click "yes". Then it is erased from your
hard drive without ever opening it. You can do virtually the same thing in
your "in" box. Stuff you don't know anything about....highlight it, hold down
the shift key, and then push the delete key..and the same dialog box will
come up again confirming that you want to delete it, and zap...it's gone. You
don't have to open it. It works ....I do it all the time.
