I am not receiving some emails. I have contacted "3" my mobile broadband supplier who suggested that I emailed myself. This I did and received it okay. Please advise


If you cannot receive certain emails only, it can be because your address had been written wrongly by the sender, contact the sender and check this out.

If you have a spammed mail folder, check also in your spam mail, if you use automated antispam, the mails may have been directed by mistake in the spam folder.

Tip

How to keep a check on Email Spam?


Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

Block unwanted email


It depends on your mail program, you can set up Junk or Spam mail filters to ban groups or individual mail addresses.
How you do it and whether it is automatic depends on your mail program.
Some like Outlook online will filter out the mail and put it in a junk mail folder for you, rather than in your inbox, but it does not stop you receiving the mail. You have to decide whether to delete it yourself.

Where is the spam folder on the computer


Spam folder is not specific to the computer, but it refers to a folder when you log into your email address.
Emails that are presumed to junk emails, would be received into the spam folder, instead of the inbox.
Incase you have an email that is from a known source, in your spam folder, then you will have to add that email address into your contacts, so that the next time an email is received from the same email address, it will come into your inbox, instead of coming into the spam folder.

I WANT TO DELETED ALL SPAM THET I GET EVERYDAY


  • Complain to your ISP. If you receive an unrequested and unwanted message, forward it to your ISP. (Your ISP, such as BT Internet or a local operation, provides you Internet access and service.) Ask your access provider to block incoming mail from that address and to complain on your behalf.
  • Use an online blocking service. Check to see what filtering options your access provider or email service may provide to subscribers. America Online, for example, has a preferred mail option (keyword = preferred mail) to protect a user’s account from receiving email from known junk emailers. iVillage also has some filtering services in its email programme. Secondly, look at free online services such as Bright Light Technologies, with screens mail before your read it and promises to eliminate up to 90 per cent of spam without eradicating wanted email.

  • Install a filtering programme. There are dozens on the market. Two that we like are Spambuster, a shareware programme, or PC Spamkiller which has one of the highest ratings on the market.

  • Forward offenders’ names to websites committed to stamping out spam. Two examples are, the Blacklist of Internet Advertisers and SpamCop. Both are US sites, but then the States has a bigger problem with spam than the UK and Europe.
  • Complain to your ISP. To do this first you’ll need to make sure you have the right domain name (whatever follows the @ sign, such as @ivillage.com), since spammers often disguise their domains so nice people like you can’t find them to complain.
  • Visit the SpamCop site’s FAQ for tips on how to find domain names. Once you have the right domain, send complaints to the following standardised address: abuse@ (their domain); postmaster@ (their domain); root@ (their domain); admin@ (their domain).

    Too much spam


    Don't tell anyone your email address!
    Your email address can be found from people you send email to.
    Most antivirus software can intercept it and most email programs like thunderbird have a built in spam filter - you just need to configure it do what you want with the spam

    I keep getting around 150 spams per day. Other than changing my email address is there anything i can do to get back at these people so they stop annoying me


    Almost all email programs have some sort of spam filter/address blocker that you can configure. I'd check into that first. If yours does not, you can go to www.cnet.com and do a search on spam blocker. There are free ones you can try/download.

    Every time I send a email to this one email address it comes back to me and their computer won't except jokes or pictures from mine. How can we fix this?


    they have got their email settings so that it will not allow attachments to be opened, this is found in tools if they are using outlook express.

    But if the email comes back you have not sent it to the correct address
