Delete all Spam Files


You will have to check off one-by-one the spam emails and delete. Here is a tip for avoiding spam...
How to avoid spam
1. Use email filtering software at your email gateway to block spam as well as email-borne spyware, viruses and worms.
2. Never make a purchase from an unsolicited email. By making a purchase, you are funding future spam.
3. If you don't know the sender of an unsolicited email, delete it. Spam can contain dangerous malware that can compromise your computer.
4. Don't use the preview mode in your email viewer. Many spammers can track when a message is viewed, even if you don't click on the email. If you view a spam email, it confirms your address to the spammers.
5. Don't overexpose your email address. Posting to mailing lists that are archived online, publishing your address publicly on social networks, and using an easily guessable address based on your name and company makes you an easy mark for spammers.
6. Keep your work and personal email separate. And use one or two secondary email addresses for when you fill out web registration forms or surveys on sites from which you don't want further information.

How can I limit spam mail without closing account and opening another?


Don't Post Addresses Online- Never post email addresses online such as in message boards, forums or on websites for all to see. Spammers (and Phishers) have automated processes that can 'harvest' these. If you must post it, then disguise the format (e.g. john.smithATgmailDOTcom).
- If you receive a lot of spam, a web search for your email address may reveal whether it is posted anywhere online and you can remove it.
Avoid Common, Guessable Formats- The more complicated your email address, the less likely it will become a target for spam. Spammers use software that trys to guess email addresses and a commonly used format such as firstname.surname@company.com will be a greater target of attack than firstname1_surname1@company.com.
- Obviously, the trade-off is that your email address will not be quite as memorable or look as nice.
Limit Sharing of Addresses- The more you share your email address, the more spam you will receive, it is that simple.
- Never share your primary personal or work email addresses with those you don't know or trust.
Use 'Disposable' Addresses- Many stores and online services request email addresses for things like account registration, mailing lists and discounts. Set up an email address specifically for these cases, so you do not have to use your primary personal or work email address.
- When spam becomes an issue for this additional email address, simply dispose of it and set up a new one. Services such as Gmail allow you to check and send from different email addresses in one place, facilitating easy management of multiple addresses.
No Email Based Screen Names- If you participate in message boards, chatrooms, Twitter or similar where you display an on-screen name, don't use your email address before the @ sign as the screen name.
- Spammers will often take screen names and add common email endings such as @gmail.com, @yahoo.com and @hotmail.com, in order to guess legitimate email addresses.
Delete without Opening- It is often obvious from the subject line that an email is spam.
- Simply add the sender to your spam filter and delete the email without even opening it. If you do not open it, there is no possibility of the spammer being informed that your email account is active.
Disable Automatic Content Downloads
- Automatically downloading images or other dynamic content in emails might make them look nice, but can reveal to the spammer that your email account is active.
- As a minimum, turn off automatic image downloads in your emails until you are sure the email is trusted and not spam or a phishing email. Specifying to read messages in plain text only will add a further level of security, as all dynamic content will be blocked from download.
Don't Forward Spam- Be wary of emails from anyone asking you to forward the email on, such as petition, chain or joke emails. By forwarding these emails, you are effectively spamming others.
- In addition, these emails are used by spammers to obtain legitimate email addresses for spamming, as they contain the email address of everyone who has forwarded the message along with the addresses of everyone each person forwarded it to.
Never Reply or Click the Links- Clicking links, including the ubiquitous 'unsubscribe' link, in spam emails or replying to spam, will confirm to the spammer that your email account is active, resulting in more spam being received. It may also direct you to a website that contains malware.
- Never reply to spam and avoid clicking links in spam emails. Only click the 'unsubscribe' link for marketing emails you remember signing up for.
Never Purchase anything from Spam- Don't fall for products or services advertised in spam emails, no matter how good they may sound. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
- Buying something advertised in spam only supports the case for spamming and will likely increase the amount of spam you receive, as the spammers now know you are willing to buy.
Avoid Opting In- When purchasing or registering something online, there are usually one or more checkboxes allowing you to opt out of marketing communications or sharing of your information with other 'partners'. If you opt in, you may be opting in to a lot of future spam.
- Always read the opt-out messages with care, as these are cleverly worded to get you to opt-in. Some of them require either selection or de-selection to opt out, whilst others require a mix of selection and de-selection to fully opt out!
Read Privacy Policies- Always read the website's privacy policy before purchasing products or registering your details for software or services online.
- Understand how your email address may be used and whether they can share or sell it to other third parties, who could be spammers.
Use a Spam filter- Activate Phishing and Spam filters on your email account and in your Internet browser to help ensure you avoid receiving spam in the first place.
- Most reputable email service providers will have spam filters that you can turn on, some of which allow very granular policies to be set.
Report Spam- Report spam that does slip through the net to your email service provider or your company, as applicable.
- This will add the sender to their spam filters, identify whether spam filter policies need to be updated and will block future spam from that sender appearing in your inbox again. Reporting spam can also result in the spammer being identified and criminally prosecuted.
Keep Anti-Virus Software Updated- Ensure your anti-virus software is kept up to date and download the latest signatures on a daily basis.
- A lot of malware is designed to access your email contacts and send spam or malware to them from your email account without you even realising.
If it all gets too much...- Finally, if the amount of spam becomes too much to control, you may simply have to start again and obtain a new email address.
- Monitor the old email account in parallel to ensure that all legitimate contacts have your new email address, then delete the old one.

How do I get my email addresses off of a blacklist?


Firstly, change your password on both accounts, as both accounts may be compromised, secondly run a virus/malware scan on all your devices that you use to access these accounts (avast for virus scan, unless you already have an up to date anti virus installed. Malware bytes for Malware and maybe a scan with super anti spyware wouldn't go amiss). After you have done all of this then you can start looking into why your accounts are flagged as spam. It could be the IP address that your Internet provider has given you has previously been flagged as a spamming IP Address, try turning your router off for about 20 minutes so when you turn it back on you get a new IP address and try again then. As an individual user there is not much more you can do apart from contacting google and Yahoo, they both have forms online (a little tricky to find) that you can fill in to ask to be removed from the blacklist. It may be prudent to have a look at the goole terms for bulk sending as well to make sure you are not falling fowl of googles t&c's. Hope that helps.

Get rid of spam


Unsolicited junk e-mail, or spam, is an unwelcome and often offensive byproduct of the Internet's success. Although there's no guarantee you can avoid all spam, there are ways to avoid looking at most of it.Instructions

  1. Basic prevention
    • 1 If you're already getting spam messages, check with your Internet service provider to see whether it has a spam-prevention option that scans your incoming e-mail for known spammers.
    • 2 If you're lucky enough not to be getting spam now, then sign up for a second (free) e-mail address from a service such as Yahoo or Hotmail. Use this address exclusively for e-commerce, mailing-list subscriptions and bulletin-board postings of any kind. Reserve your main e-mail address for private e-mail to and from friends.
    Rule filtering
    • 1 Create an e-mail folder called Suspected Spam.
    • 2 Use the filtering feature in your e-mail program to create rules that redirect spam messages to your Suspected Spam folder. Most spam is not addressed to its recipient by name.
    • 3 Define a rule for incoming mail that says, "If my name appears in the To: or cc: field, then move this message to the Inbox." The procedure for defining rules varies among e-mail programs, so you should consult your program's Help feature to learn exactly how this works.
    • 4 Define individual rules to catch e-mail that isn't addressed to you personally but that you nevertheless want to receive, such as messages from lists you've subscribed to. Have these rules redirect the relevant messages to the Inbox or to special folders that you have created for mail from those sources--for instance: "If the Sender field includes 'MyList,' then send this message to the MyList folder."
    • 5 Define a final rule that sends all other e-mail that hasn't already been redirected by one of your other rules to the Suspected Spam box. For instance, a rule that says, "If the Sender field isn't 'XYXYXYXYY,' then move this message to the Suspected Spam folder" would work as a catchall.
dmjs.revenueTags.push('ca-ehow_336x280;int_email,text,suggested7'); googleAds.addAdUnit({ priority : 2, adUnitId : 'GoogleAdsense336x280', google_ad_channel : 'int_email,text,suggested7', google_ad_client : 'ca-ehow_336x280', google_max_num_ads : '4', google_hints : '', google_image_size : '336x280' }); Tips & Warnings
  • Never reply to a spam message, even to request that your name be removed from the list. That just tells the spammers that your address is valid.

I get a message saying that my browser attaches spam when sending a chat message. I just started getting this tonight. How can I fix it.


Hi there,

Do you have AVG an anti-virus? I had this problem too, and I was confused because I have no browser plugins that I can think of. However, it turns out that the latest version of AVG has a feature which inserts a message about links being safe when you post them on Facebook, MySpace, etc. Deactivating that fixed it for me. Go to your AVG advanced settings menu and find LinkScanner, then uncheck the box about inserting messages into Facebook and MySpace posts.

Interestingly, this didn't cause me any problems in Internet Explorer, only in Chrome. It's how I discovered this. I decided to try posting a link in Internet Explorer, and it did post but it added a message about LinkScanner to the post, so I went to turn that feature off and then discovered Google Chrome will now let me post links to Facebook again. In any case, it's definitely the problem, at least on my computer. May be you should try this software Anti-malware bytes,click here to download.

9. When MBAM has finished removing the malware, it will open the scan log and display it in Notepad. Review the log as desired, and then close the Notepad window.

I have a princeton vl1918 monitor and the screen continously flashes, making it impossible to do anything, I press the select/auto button or the menu button and it does nothelp because the screen falshes...


Hi There,

There are really only 2 main things I could see as the problem.

1. Your screen has a "backlight" which is like a very slender flourescent light tube. It could be about to fail.

2. You have a video card in the computer which is failing.

The easiest way to check is to take the monitor and hook it to another computer. If it's still flashing like crazy, it's the monitor. If it displays normally, your computer has a video card or other motherboard related issue.

Why is my yahoo mail sending messages to everyone i know when i am not doing it


The message you're getting is because the Yahoo mail server has flagged you outgoing message as either Spam or, it contains a virus.

The first thing you should is scan your pc for viruses / malware using a well known anti virus program. Sophos and Kaspersky both make good products. You can also run a free online scan of your pc from Trend Micro's website.

If a scan of your pc does not detect any viruses or malware then you will need to contact Yahoo's customer support to find out exactly why your messages are being rejected.

There's nothing wrong with your account settings and the free version of Yahoo mail has no restrictions on sending outbound mail except for possibly a size limitation on messages containing attachments.
