Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I have an email address that someone is using without my promission. I want to get rid of it but don't know how. I am angry. Felicia
If it's a result of the current virus infection, you may not be able to do much. I just wrote an article on it: http://ask-leo.com/archives/000065.html - see if that doesn't at least explain what might be going on.
Also remember to not make getting your e-mail address easy..... Like posting it on a website ..... hey why did my inbox just fill up? I'm the President!
For Outlook users:
I have been having a lot of success with a Spam filter called spambayes. You can find it at spambayes.org. I've yet to have a "good" email get deleted. If the filter isn't sure, it will deposit it into a folder called Junk Suspects and then you can tell the filter whether it is good or bad. The filter learns from past emails which is good and which is bad. If you have a bunch of emails saved up (both good and spam) you can give it a headstart when it first initializes.
hi there i was wondering if you could give me a list of steps on how i could get rid spam.
Please read the article.
I get rid of SPAM by hitting MESSAGE and BLOCK SENDER. It would send it to TOOLS, BLOCK SENDER LIST. But Recently the list of blocked addresses has disappeared and if I do it, the address only goes on the list for a minute and then disappears!! What is happening??????
I tried to use different spam filters for Outlook (not Express): Inboxer, Spam Bully, Outlook Spam Filter and others. Finally I came to Spam Reader and it's most suitable for me - very simple but very effective. http://www.spam-reader.com
How do I get rid of something that is saved on to my Search Program?I have tried to get rid of it but no success. Can you please tell me?
I am not interested in any email that "domains" from China, or Russia. Is there a way of blocking all mail which has any connection to these countries. What I'm asking I guess, is there a way of simply having this mail not even leave my ISP or at least auto delete forever without my even knowing it existed.
I'm not concerned about 'good' mail not reaching me because I'm not interested in *any* mail that has in its headers any reference to China or Russia.
MailWasher blacklists most of these but I still have have to go through them and manually delete them. I would rather they didn't even show up in MailWasher at all.
