Spam

Recommended Posts

Lately, on my Gmail account, I've been getting one spam messege. I know, not a lot, but still, its quite annoying. It's something about getting a new job, and it says on the bottom, to get yourself off this mailing list, please send a messege here with the title REMOVE ME. I have done this many times, however I still get this messege. And, i don't really know HOW he got my email address, as for all account sign ups on websites i use spam email accounts. I was just wondering, is anyone else having this problem? and what are some things i can do to stop it?

Never ever ever respond to those. All that does is asks for more :o:o

well, the first time i ignored it, but then it came again. Then, i responded....its getting quite annoying now...

Hi Murtu52,

In my experience (until Son said, "MOM don't respond to them!") what you did by "unsubscribing" often does work! Usually I would only get one more email which I would ignore, and thats the end of it. Guess it depends on the Spammer :) Liz

if you use OE there is a means to block them .

tho they just change there address .

have you tried mailwasher .

it is supposed to bounce the mail back to the sender.

but it dosent work if the spammers are big bizness they can afford to keep changing the address.

what i did i have 3 email accounts .

one in my inbox which i dont publish.

and one i leave in my web mail and the other i use an alias.

this tends to bounce it back to the sender.

and of course my in box address which very few people know

but i can assure you it dosent stop a trickle of mail getting through

pharmacy mail is the worst.

have a talk with your isp.

some of them sell your email address to spammers

very lucritive bizness.
