Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Cookies and spam blockers are unrelated settings on a computer. This leaves me guessing what you may be talking about.
About my blockers: When I set my blockers, I can't login to my email. But if I reduce it, my spam and email fill up. I can't win! Can you help?
In this excerpt from Answercast #34, I look at a few settings that could affect logging into email and/or blocking spam.
To be honest, no.
I can't because I really don't know what kind of blocker you're talking about.
If you're talking about cookies, then absolutely. Blocking cookies will prevent you from being able to login to a system.
Cookies are one of the things that, I think, a lot of people get really wrapped up about. They then have this knee-jerk reaction to block all cookies. This is the kind of thing that results from blocking cookies, so if that's what you're doing, dial that back a notch.
Unfortunately, cookies aren't going to affect the amount of spam that you get and the amount of email you get.
In fact, I can't think of anything that you could block on your system that would affect the amount of email that you get. This is what leaves me at a loss. So I'm going to need your help to clarify exactly what you're referring to.
Your spam and your email are filling up...?
That seems unrelated to anything that you might be blocking. So like I said, I'm at a loss. I'm not sure what you're talking about.
The kinds of things that would affect your ability to login at all...
Would not be related to the kinds of things that would affect how much email
you do or do not get and how much of it is spam.
